leap second

breaking the long drought of leap seconds, the International Earth Rotation Service announced earlier this month there is to be an extra second on Saturday 31st December 2005, at midnight GMT. so it will go from 23:59:58 to 23:59:59 to 23:59:60 and then to 00:00:00 on new year's day.

many of us have wished for more time. what will you do with the extra second?
