Dave,

Your extensive and timely(!) knowledge about time-keeping makes me wonder
if you are thinking of applying for Swiss nationality. The Swiss have
great respect for clocks. They have that great engineering principle -
if its working don't muck it about. As far as I know they are alone in Europe
in NOT changing there time + or - 1 hour each year; they must be miffed by all
this 1 second leaping done at infrequent intervals.
