tick tick tock

Traditional clocks tick once every second; tick tick tick tick tick tick... 60 ticks per minute. That's how they work, should work, right?

Well, I was going to measure the time something takes and casually opened up the clock in Windows to look at the seconds on that clock, just in case I'd had too much caffeine in m and got the seconds a bit too fast....

I noticed that Microsofts clock in Windows Server 2003, pauses every 5 seconds; tick tick tick tick tick...pause...tick tick tick tick tick...pause...

Great work Microsoft...I'm not very surprised
