hi,
that was an interesting discussion on problems we encountered too with our
sun zoo. but suddenly the leap-second leped to my eye: what does the
german watch maker industry about this problem?
so i leaped to the conclusion to ask somebody about this.
what i got back was no answer but a question:

from the cuickoo clock cuckoos labor union:
unfortunately this leap second falls just in the time of our greatest
activity. because we cannot break what shall we do in this additional time?
play leapfrog with ourselves???

this leads me to another reason for this additional time unit:
for me as an user this is just introduced to make me look older than i am.
regards gerd beling FRG
