 +=== Time ===
 +You can have your system time (different from the hardware time) synced up so it's as correct as possible. Having your time out of sync can cause problems with authenticating with [[TOTP]].
 +
 +There are multiple ways to go about this, but I found installing [[arch>​openntpd]] to be the easiest.
 +
 +  - ''#​ pacman -S openntpd''​ to install
 +  - ''#​ sudo systemctl start openntpd.service''​ to start the daemon
 +  - ''#​ sudo systemctl enable openntpd.service''​ to make it run whenever you start the computer.
 +
 +You can control which server it connects to, but the default does a good job of picking the best option :)
