Just a reminder that there's a leap second tonight.
Last time I watched for what happened on 01/01/2006, there was a
little bit of chaos: http://markmail.org/message/cpoj3jw5onzhhjkr?q=%22kevin+day%22+leap+second+reminder+nanog&page=1&refer=cnkxb3iv7sls5axu
I've been told that some of the causes of these problems are fixed on
any reasonably recent ntp distribution, but just in case, you might
wanna keep an eye out if you're seeing any weirdness. The worst damage
I'd heard from anyone after that event was their clock being
significantly off for several hours.
