Tuesday has one extra second and that could be dangerous for the internet
Called a “leap second,” it has been added approximately every 18 months since 1972 to rectify ‘lost’ time from the slowing rotation, ensuring that the atomic clock is in sync with Earth. Humans can handle the additional second without even being aware of it, but computers aren’t quite accustomed to the path of time suddenly changing. – Owen Williams, The Next Web
