On my machine at work I experience weird timestamps of files. This is bothering me, because it messes with
To reproduce the issue, this suffices:
$ touch foo $ stat -c %y foo 2014-01-31 16:38:51.000000000 +0100 $ date Fr 31. Jan 16:14:59 CET 2014
As you can see, the file, although just created, has a timestamp that is roughly 24 minutes in the future. To be precise, it is fairly stable at 24 minutes and 8 seconds, which is 1448 seconds, to me a seemingly arbitrary number.
The same holds for directories freshly created with
mkdir or simply any kind of file saving / creating stuff.
Our administrator is fairly unresponsive and didn't gave root permissions either. What might be the cause of this issue and how to deal with it, if possible without root?
