Just had the email from IERS to say that there will be a leap second this year. It'll be put in between June and July, so if you're watching a suitably sophisticated clock showing UTC, when June ends you'll see this sequence:
2015-06-30 23:59:58
2015-06-30 23:59:59
2015-06-30 23:59:60
2015-07-01 00:00:00
2015-07-01 00:00:01

What are you planning to do with your extra second?

I have put a reminder in my calendar for early August- really don't want to miss the second hand skipping.

Okay, I'll bite. Won't that be a bit late? (_;)

Where does that second come from? People who work nights will have to work longer. Imagine giving birth at 23.59.60! Would the baby's birthday be 30th June or 1st July?

Think all of those things would take me longer than a second.

Neither. They become a time lord. :{

(Actually, the boring answer is 30th June, but I like my first answer better.)

Not long to go, if you've not made your plans. 8)

And happy birthday, froghopper.
