BTW
I've constructed chronometer "component". It weights some 5kg or more
You can't have true chronometer on a computer running Windows.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

  The QueryPerformanceCounter function retrieves the current value of the high-resolution performance counter, if one exists

Beautiful.

Think about threads. It is simply not possible to start and stop it precisely under Windows. For this we've got real time operating systems.
