Manually set the date and let ntpd correct it if neccessary.
As root, run "date 0755" (if you want 7:55) or whatever is
approximately the correct time you run the command at. See
"man date" for details on the format to be supplied.

If I remember correctly, the older ntpdate command would
only change the system time up to a certain threshold,
"adjust" it, and you needed to manually set the time "near"
the real time, or supply a specific flag for a "bigger"
system time change. Today's ntpd should handle this fine.

This is really magnificent time travel magic at OS level. ;-)
