RE: Leap second tonight

It's theoretically possible for leap seconds to be introduced 
at the end of March and September. 

As I recall, NTP supports leap seconds every month,
for which there is a prediction that even this
would be insufficient at some point in this
millennium (depending, of course, on the actual
rotation speed).  There have been on again/off again
talks to abolish the leap second for quite a number
of years.
