An ontology of clocks

There are two interesting corner cases that should get documented someplace.

Reading the RTC only gives you an answer to the second.  You can actually get 
a lot better than that if you spin and wait for it to tick.  (I carefully 
avoided using whatever word I should have used.)

Do you know about hanging bridges?

That problem shows up if you try to get a PPS pulse in via USB.  The USB 
clock is coarse enough to make things interesting.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
