    The time it takes for one to think this is cool will be longer than the extension. LOL

    Attention! This means, that after 2012-07-01 T 00:00 UTC your atomic watches and clocks will suddenly be 1 sec fast! Be sure to sync manually after that time (e.g. in America it will be 2012-06-30 some time in the afternoon/evening) to get the right time :)

    I am for sure going to follow this with two watches. A non-atomic watch is to be set 1 sec slow to the atomic watch before the leap second is added. Then after it is added, and after manual sync, they must be in sync! Plus I am going to observe what my GPS shows as the last time I didn't manage to spot it.

    That's annoying, my 5600J hasn't lost or gained a single second in two months and it will now be one second out!! I know, I am quite a sad individual. I need a hobby...oh wait this is my hobby.
