This way, time will not normally go backwards for file time stamps. In the late 70's your PDP-11 might crash once a day due to some hardware glitch - doing time this way was a useful feature to have. It also reminds me that I need to configure a daemon to sync the disk every 5 seconds; on my research setup I don't have that.
If the ESP32 is the time reference, why bother with the RTC chip (other than technical challenge)? The ESP32 might as well drive the emulated 99xx RTC chip directly.
