It's a few seconds off from TAI, isn't it? It was synchronized to UTC in 1980 (I think), but without subsequent leap seconds, so it's now different from both TAI and UTC. They probably should just have used TAI if they wanted a time scale without leap seconds, rather than ending up creating a different one. -- == Dan == Dan's Mail Format Site: http://mailformat.dan.info/ Dan's Web Tips: http://webtips.dan.info/ Dan's Domain Site: http://domains.dan.info/
