2012-07-03: Leap second takes its time

As some of you techies may have noticed there was a leap second last weekend.

Several hosting providers have mentioned that they have noticed a big increase of the power consumption. This was because of 100% CPU load after that leap second. See this news: Leap second bug in Linux wastes electricity

Our server was also affected. We noticed this because one of the CPU cores was at 100% load. The fix was pretty easy:

date -s "$(LC_ALL=C date)"

Maybe it's time to check your servers, too ;-)

2012-01-10: New SSL certificate
