The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. clocks

    Processor logic cycles, so called because each generally corresponds to one clock pulse in the processor's timing. The relative execution times of instructions on a machine are usually discussed in clocks rather than absolute fractions of a second; one good reason for this is that clock speeds for various models of the machine may increase as technology improves, and it is usually the relative times one is interested in when discussing the instruction set. Compare cycle, jiffy.

    We all run on two clocks. One is the outside clock, which ticks away our decades and brings us ceaselessly to the dry season.

Sometimes the inner clock runs itself out long before the outer one, and you see a dead man going through the motions of living.
