Did you know…

that when you say “I’ll be out in a jiffy!“, you really mean that you’d take 10ms (that’s miliseconds, a tenth of a second) to show yourself at the door?

Well at least in computing terms, it means exactly that. So next time you date a computer person, don’t say “jiffy” like you mean it, cause you know you’ll take approximately 36000 jiffies to pick (and throw) your clothes, do your make up, search for your lip gloss, make sure everything’s in your purse, tinker with your handphone, stare at your reflection to make sure nothing’s wrong with your face, make tiny adjustments to your clothes and finally gracefully make your way out. And that’s for the girls.

Guys, we all know we are never late :mrgreen:
Okay back to calculating how many jiffies it takes to run a process at base priority -20 or less, bah! >(

Wanna say something?
