• Sync date without NTP (for BeagleBone, Pi, etc)

    I live in a place protected by a HTTP Proxy, so NTP doesn't work when I want to sync date for my SBCs as they don't keep the time when turned off.

    I found this command, which can be used to set the date by querying a Google server. Not so accurate as NTP but does the job.

    sudo date -s "$(curl -s --head http://google.com | grep ^Date: | sed 's/Date: //g')"
