What time is it

Although we do not talk about it much today, Linux systems (and more generically, Unix systems) have a service running that provides the server's current date and time. This application, known as a daytime server, typically runs as a daemon, meaning in the background and not connected to a particular shell. For our purposes, we will implement a basic daytime server for Android/Linux, but we won't worry about turning it into a background service.

This application helps exercise our interest in developing Android/Linux applications. First and most important, this is an application of some significance beyond a simple printf statement. Second, once this application is built we write an Android/ Java application to interact with the daytime server.
