I guess only Dennis, Ken or Brian could be affected, and I doubt they
bothered to set their clocks even to second precision.
And in particular:
Poul-Henning Kamp | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk at FreeBSD.ORG | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer | BSD since 4.3-tahoe
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
