  Leap second -- spend it wisely!
This year will be one second longer than the last seven!!! Hopefully you've all started planning how to best take advantage of the extra time. I know I'm looking forward to one extra sip of champagne before we bring in two oh oh six. From the article:
Time marches on, but Earth is falling behind. The solution again this year is to add a "leap second" as 2005 ticks away, so Earth can catch up with the atomic clocks that have defined time since their unerring accuracy trumped the heavens three decades ago.

This will be the first leap second in seven years, and its arrival will be closely watched by physicists and astronomers enmeshed in a prolonged debate over the future of time in a world increasingly dominated by technology.
