Rob - perhaps you took no notice at the time: but I suspect that your
leap second on Jun 30 was a meson of anti-time flying off from the
collision between Martin Greenwood's message from the 21st century and
yur own computer clock.

Unless it was sent to the list as proof that DF is a natural phenomenon
and we'll never be rid of it. How many 29.94/30ths of a second does it
take to make up a leap second? In percentage terms?

And now, back to telecine . . .
