    I am at work now and we are waiting for the top of the hour for a Leap Second to be added to make sure it doesn't mess up our network. Kinda like a Y2K scenario but obviously not that big of a deal. Here is the description of what its all about:

    To ensure the correct alignment of astronomical and atomic time, the International Earth Rotation & Reference Systems Service has called for an extra second to be added to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) at 23:59:59 on 30 June 2015.

    This will be the 26th leap second adjustment since 1972, and represents an important consideration for providers of computing, networking, and software solutions


    NERD STUFF!!!!

    Warmth must have his day off on Wed.
    He's posting past 7 pm.
    Maybe he will go to the beach and get eaten by a shark.
