NTP, I assume?

That'd be very much ok.

In Paroli, it's white on black, but in Illume, the top bar is light
grey. There, it should probably be black on white for that reason.

Thank you. I guess that someone should appropriately augment the
"Getting Started" page in the wiki to explain the different GUIs, along
with screenshots/photos. Taking note do do that at some point...

There was a dialogue in Paroli where I could adjust the time. There, I
entered the time according to my local time zone, being unaware of the
network time stuff. But I'd prefer to configure an /etc/localtime, like
in any other *nix, too. Doing it in frameworkd.conf should work, too.

Thank you for your hand-holding.

Kind regards,
