cloudClock: Force an update of the time with ntpd

Whenever ntpd detects a huge different between the system time and the ntp server time, ntpd does not update the time. I should investigate further on why it behaves that way, but I think I know enough about ntpd already for now... so I investigated how to make ntpd to force the update and this is what I found:

To force a large NTP update, do the following:

Stop the NTPD service ("/etc/init.c/ntpd stop")
run ntpd -gnqd
Start the NTPD service again ("/etc/init.c/ntpd start")
