Did You Know Tuesdays….
Did You Know…

…that a jiffy is an actual unit of time? The measurement of time that a jiffy represents is different depending on where it’s being used.

We know it generally as some short period of time, as in “I’ll be back in jiffy.”

In electronics, a jiffy is about 1/60 of a second. In computing, it’s approximately 0.01 seconds. Check the Wiki entry for jiffy to learn more.

But do it in a jiffy!
