Leap second - No, sir, don't like it

Leap second:

I remember the big Y2K todo.  Lots of hype, lots of worry, lots of prep, and then nothing happened.

But this Leap Second from last Saturday.  Sheesh.

I saw our production web server's java-based webapps go into tight little loops that consumed lots of CPU, and did little web application serving.  I rebooted that Saturday night.

Then on Sunday I saw a report that our (non-production) video streaming server (based on Wowza which is a java webapp too) had become unresponsive.  We rebooted that early, early Monday morning.

And then our staging server freaked out too, and we rebooted in Monday morning.

I don't like leap second.
