comment How long will NTP take to adjust the clock if it doesn't immediately set it?
If you can write a C program you can use the adjtime() system call to get the kernel to report how much clock slew is left to be done.

comment SCSI's, SATA's, RAID's oh my. Please direct me the wizard of RAID recovery
By "handed me a box" do you mean a cardboard box or a computer or a hardware RAID enclosure or what? If it's hardware RAID, then you need to find a working instance of this hardware. If it's a computer, you might be dealing with software RAID in which case you can probably just boot the right version of UNIX/Linux on fresh hardware and recover the drives, assuming that they still even spin.
