Sometimes being obtuse is it's own reward, but this time there's something in it for you if you know what "16.7ms" is referring to. I'm curious enough to see that I'm willing to shell out my own hard-earned cash to the first non-Microsoft employee that figures it out. Post your guesses to my Comments section, please.
Your choice of:
For the person who comes up with the most amusing, albeit incorrect, translation, I'll award a Windows Vista stainless steel tumbler!
...and just like that, we have a silly contest!
Update: We have a winner for the "real" definition (16.7ms == 1/60 second, the time for 1 field of interlaced NTSC/ATSC video), but I'll keep the silly side of it open until tomorrorow (1/6/2006) at 5 PM PST.
Update 2: Entries are now closed, thanks! I will be considering each and every one based on their merits, feed it through my ultra-advanced HumorSensor 5000, double-check the results with the IOC, and the UN Human Rights Commission, and present the results as soon as is humanly possible. Or I may just look 'em over and choose the one that makes me laugh. Either way, I'll let you know...
