jiffy    : [dʒ'ɪfi]
Jiffy \Jif"fy\, n. [Perh. corrupt. fr. gliff.] [Written also
A moment; an instant; as, I will be ready in a jiffy.
[Colloq.] --J. & H. Smith.
[1913 Webster]

n 1: a very short time (as the time it takes the eye to blink or
the heart to beat); "if I had the chance I'd do it in a
flash" [synonym: {blink of an eye}, {flash}, {heartbeat},
{instant}, {jiffy}, {split second}, {trice}, {twinkling},
{wink}, {New York minute}]

28 Moby Thesaurus words for "jiffy":
breath, breathing, coup, crack, flash, half a jiffy, half a mo,
half a second, half a shake, instant, jiff, microsecond,
millisecond, minute, moment, sec, second, shake, split second,
stroke, tick, trice, twink, twinkle, twinkling, twitch, two shakes,

1. The duration of one {tick} of the computer's {system
clock}. Often one AC cycle time (1/60 second in the US and
Canada, 1/50 most other places), but more recently 1/100 sec
has become common.

2. Confusingly, the term is sometimes also used for a
1-millisecond {wall time} interval. Even more confusingly,
physicists semi-jokingly use "jiffy" to mean the time required
for light to travel one foot in a vacuum, which turns out to
be close to one *nanosecond*.
