OK, so I'm still having one issue with this whole "Gentoo changed where
all the configuration settings for the clock" problem: The clock is
syncing to a different timezone. I have /etc/timezone set to
"America/New York", and I tried to copy that link into
/etc/conf.d/timezone, just guessing that the was the new location for
this link (I think it's a link...) I guess it's set to UTC. How to I
get it back to EST?
