leap second

The time is out of joint, o 'cursed spite.

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology will set it right
on June 30, at one second before midnight UTC, by adding a leap second.
Systems that run on POSIX time will ignore this. The effect is that they
will consider the difference between the epoch and now to be 22 seconds
less than it really is.
