Leap Second

Postby CardZeus » Fri, 30 Dec 2005 5:15 pm

Happy New Year to all !!! Don't celebrate too early though - a leap second is being added this year. So if you listen to BBC 'pips' you'll hear 7 instead of the normal 6
The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is at all comprehensible.
