eBay is a great example. The eBay snipers are probably the best
example of a significant number of people who ever care what time it
is to a sub-second precision. (I wonder which community is larger,
astronomers or eBay snipers?)

Which led me to wonder: Has eBay thought about the upcoming leap
second and how are they going to handle it?

Anyone on this list know? Anyone have a good contact at eBay that we
could ask?
