UTC Rollover now passed. Happy New Year, London. Since you're reading this, the Net hasn't fallen over. But unless I get some sleep soon, I may.

So Good Night, Good Morning, Good Afternoon to one and all, and I'm signing off now to get some Kip.

1104 local, 0004 UTC on 01/01/2000 at Canberra Australia, and All's Well.

YEAH. Did you see the Greenwich Countdown clock STALL at 1 second to rollover?

Well, it's not TEOTWAWKI, but then again according to the OFFICAL Greenwich UTC Millenium Countdown clock, it's still December 31, 1999. Evidently we still have 50 minutes to go.

50 more minutes to go??? How is that???

Just got home from work, worked through UTC roll over. I work at an FAA air traffic control tower. All equipment appears to be working and rolled over as if nothing of any import had passed, radar, radios, weather, flight data processing, etc. Good news folks. I for one feel <> better, however, I will be cooking meals here at home for the next 6 mmonths or so. Sigh.
