Off to Hong Kong today so I think I miss new years. Cross the date line today at 2300Z, get one hour of new years and then change to Jan 2nd!

So actually new years is 1 hour long for me.

Saves on the champagne!

All the best all!

Happy New Year, everyone! Made sure to flip the 'leap year' switch on my HP 59309A HPIB digital clock from 365 to 366. Cheers!

They should have put a bit more logic in their clock, then it would be good for 100+ years.

I used to work at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in W.Va., where there was a one second tick sent to all the telescopes from a master clock in the lab building. At each 'scope, there was the "NRAO Universal Clock" which counted up the ticks and displayed the time (and made it available to the data computers to time tag data). The logic therein had leap years accounted for, but not the 100/400 year option.

The handbook for the clock, designed in the 60s or 70s, therefore stated (slightly tongue-in-cheek) that "the NRAO Universal Clock will display the correct date until March 1, 2100, at which point the operator will have to go over to the clock and manually advance the date by one."

One of the most optimistic things I've ever seen in print!
