Did your systems survive the leap second?

Yet again, signs of insanity in the ntp department:

     remote           local      st poll reach  delay   offset    disp
=======================================================================
=127.127.1.0     127.0.0.1       10   64    0 0.00000  0.000000 3.99217

Check out that offset! Yep. A peer used by one of my ntp instances decided to go rogue or otherwise decided it was time for a stroll in the weeds. Fortunately, this is just a testing laptop I grabbed for this afternoon's "event" and it isn't doing anything meaningful.

It looks like things are fine here, at least.

How'd your systems do? It seems some people had a bad time with this whole thing.
