Still no leap second

NO positive leap second will be introduced at the end of June 2005. The difference between Coordinated Universal Time UTC and the International Atomic Time TAI is :

from 1999 January 1, 0h UTC, until further notice : UTC-TAI = -32 s

Read the entire announcement ("Bulletin C", issue 29).

Over six years now without a leap second: I believe that's one of the longest such periods in recent history.
