Wondering if you'll be ready in time for the millenium? We've just got
ourselves a little extra time.
The US Naval Observatory announced last night (that's Wednesday night,
to allow for propagation delays) that a leap second will be inserted at
midnight, December 31, to allow for the gradual slowdown in the period
of the Earth's rotation.
Yes, it's only a second, but no doubt it will come in handy for some
(literal) last-minuters. ;-)
