Leap Second

lol, somehow i got into some real technical record-keeping web pages for the navy. and in some technical report discovered the following passage:

A positive leap second will be introduced at the end of December 2005.
The sequence of dates of the UTC second markers will be:

                          2005 December 31,     23h 59m 59s
                          2005 December 31,     23h 59m 60s
                          2006 January   1,      0h  0m  0s

Given the obscurity of the source, i decided to check it out here and discovered this. So, from what i can tell, there really will be a leap second at the end of this year.

Flipping sweet.
