What I meant to say (but had to rush away and wanted to get that sent while
the time was reasonably current) was that the distro runs "ntpdate" at boot
to set the system clock. But, at every boot until I manually intervene,
/etc/resolv.conf is horked up (dnsmasq does that) so nothing using DNS
works. I use dnsmasq so tor is a lot faster. Does anyone know how to
configure it in the right way? Obviously what I'm doing bypasses it.
