And having changed the system clock by a fairly large amount, it would not
hurt to stop and restart cron.  It tends to confuse easily (I had the next
run of an every-five-minute task off in 2030 once...it fired while the
clock was set to sometime in 2030 [it logs; I saw] and seemingly kept the
"when do I do this next" cache when the clock was corrected).

It's quite possible that a system running anacron is harder to confuse.

[it logs; I saw]...I wonder what the Latin is for "it logs"...vidi is easy
enough for I saw but perhaps wrong in context:  Miss Beaumet frightened me
away from 9th/10th grade Latin]
