It’s entered the UK DNS pool, and I’m seeing quite a few requests already – currently my stats show 4.2 requests per second.

NTP is a damn useful tool to keep system clocks in sync and I’ve been using it for ages on all my boxen; it’s nice to be able to help out by sharing the load a little.

Read more info about NTP or about the project. If you have a server somewhere and are willing to help out, the project needs more pool servers to share the load – read more about joining.
