    For the life of me, I can't find anything... but does anyone know if there are any logs that show when the time was changed? The event viewer in Windows does this, and it shows previous time & new time. I can't find any information like this in Console.

    I changed my clock a few weeks ago and wasn't thinking that the clock was critical for interpreting some other logs I have... UGH.

    I still haven't found a solution... it seems to point towards using utmpx, which is suppose to show user log in activity, etc., along with system date and time changes. I tried the sample program UTXplorer, but it only shows log in activity & system boot time.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    I know that I can see how the OS automatically adjusted the time to keep it in sync with Apple's time servers.

    from console:
    3/24/11 6:02:59 PM	ntpd[19]	time reset +0.281574 s
    But I don't know about finding out about MANUAL changes you made...
