that is good cannon fodder.
What is being refered to isTHIS
Page 124 offers this humorous quote:
time of day is represented as the number of seconds
that have elapsed since the beginning of GPS time,
00:00:00 UTC 6 January 1980."
"GPS time is referenced to the Master Clock
at the US Naval Observatory
and steered to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
UTC is the time source we use to set our clocks."
"UTC is occasionally adjusted by one-second increments
to ensure that the difference between a uniform time scale
defined by atomic clocks does not differ from the
Earth's rotational time by more than 0.9 seconds."
"The timing of occurrence of these leap seconds
is determined by careful observations of the
Earth's rotation; each is announced months in advance."
"On the days it is scheduled to occur,
the leap second is inserted just following 12:59:59 p.m. UTC."
Yeah, right !
Dream on ...
OK, (To myself) deep breath...
I am in my 50's.
I have hated this topic
since I set my first VCR clock.
Yes, it WAS bigger than a breadbox...
Can you say video "reel-to-Reel"?
Let me ask all of you,
am I being to critical?
Is it to much to ask for conformity
by the very people that serve us
over 50% revenue programming per hour?
(Thats code for "Commercials"
in case you need clarification)
Add to that those that (HAVE to)
PAY outrageously ridiculous prices
to get it delivered on top of that.
To be able to set a recorder's timer
and have confidence of success ???
