[Olsr-users] Recommendation for maintaining accurate local times on nodes?

Your babel code was one of the examples I looked at before I wrote the
new code. I added support for CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW if its available,
because it seems even CLOCK_MONOTONIC can be slowed down and
accelerated by NTP influence.

(the new code use a 64 bit timestamp internally)

Clock management is a pain to do in a reasonable way!

Steven Hawkings about cosmic inflation: "An increase of billions of
billions of percent in a tiny fraction of a second. Of course, that
was before the present government."
