Macs with Intel

The new Intel Macs are now out and there is already talk of home to install Windows on them.

Based the Apple documentation, they use Intel's EFI instead of the standard PC BIOS. This means that Windows XP 32 bit will not stand a chance, but Windows Vista is meant to support EFI so it looks like that is worth a try (well for anyone that wants to run Windows on their Mac).

Just a second...

A friend of mine is quite interested in accurate time keeping, particular with reference to NTP - a protocol for various time servers to synchronise time. Apparently we got an extra "leap second" added between 31-Dec-2005 and 1-Jan-2006 and he has written a detailed assessment of how the leap second propagated through the NTP network.

The short answer is "not as well as it should have", but I recommend that you look at the article to see the point illustrated graphically.
