Ticks

When ticks are a good thing...

Today I found myself wanting to know the current time in ticks. If you're on this page, you probably know what a tick is when speaking of time, but just in case you don't, I'll tell you. A tick is a measurement of time since midnight of January 1st, 0001. It is equal to 1/10,000 of a millisecond. It can be used in software to get a precise time when something occurred.

When I couldn't find a fast, online tool to do it, I decided to write one myself. Yes, you can open up LINQPad and get the same in a single line of code, but I always like having things online where I can access them from anywhere. I hope others find it useful.

Check it out now.
