RE: How long is a Cycle?

when I first read this, I though - "how long does the 'Jet Wall' stay up after a light cycle passes? ;-)


the other question is - does this measure of time stay consistent?
computers, as you may know, can slow down or speed up depending on the processor load, etc.

also the question -

that would mean Flynn had been inside the computer world MUCH longer,
yet he had aged consistently with real world years.

Clu: "The cycles have not been kind."
K.Flynn: "Oh well, you don't look that bad!" - or something like thatbuy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

And, too....how long does a cycle FEEL? I mean, does it feel like a year when you're in there, or is it really just a smaller unit of time, much like, say, another planet might have a longer or shorter "day" or "year" than we do on earth but in reality it's the same amount of time, just defined differently than here (let's not throw relativity into this)? In which case 50 cycles would just feel like a real-world year, and each cycle, while technically being a "year" in the computer, still only seems like what it is, about a week in the real world? I assume the former, because of Flynn's comment that "hours there is only a few minutes in the real world" (I paraphrase), so I think it's safe to assume that it did seem like hours inside rather than a few minutes, but...buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

I haven't got a CLU(pun intended), but the Tron Wiki has this to say:

" * 1 minute in reality = 1 hour on the Grid
* 1 day in reality = 1,440 minutes in reality = 1,440 hours (approximately 60 days) on the Grid
* 1 year in reality = 525,600 minutes in reality = 525,600 hours (approximately 21,900 days, or 60 years) on the Grid
* Ergo: 21 years in reality x 60 years on the Grid ˜ 1,260 years, as experienced by Flynn

This calculation would seem consistent with Castor's statement regarding Clu having sought out Flynn's identity disk for "1,000 cycles".

Another way to interpret the numbers could be as follows:

* 1 millicycle would presumably be 1/1000th of a cycle
* 1 millicycle = 8 Grid hours
* 1,000 millicycles = 8,000 Grid hours = 1 cycle
* 1,000 cycles = 8,000,000 hours ˜ 913 years "buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra onlineabortion pills http://www.guitar-frets.com/blog/blog/page/how-does-abortion-pill-work.aspx medical abortion pill online

So, 1 cycle is about 333 days (pretty much a year). Where do microcycles fit into this?

Taken from the Disney offical TRON Legacy magazine...

"Grid time proceeds faster than time in the outside world, racing at the speed of electrons, and measured in TRON CYCLES. One year in the outside world equals approximately fifty TRON CYCLES."

and according to their chronology TC 1-49 started in 1983

Well, dayam! I sure have been writing time incorrectly in my fanfiction!

Well, it's FANfiction, and an AU. Just explain your time increments in an author's note, and then don't worry about it.

The good thing about post-Legacy fanfic is that you're pretty much free to do whatever you want...because you can argue that the original Grid was either destroyed or damaged beyond repair (or, if you want, say that Sam had to repair it). That means you can have Sam make whatever changes to it that you want.

Here's the breakdown grid time vs real time, yeah too much time on my hands


Per movie
"1 Millicycle = 8 hours (grid time)"
1 cycle is 8,000 hours = 333.3 days.  (milli prefix means 1/1,000)
50 cycles = 1 year real time = 16,665 grid time days (wow long year)

1 cycle = 7 days, 7 hours,19 minutes,12 seconds RT
1 Millicycle = .175 hours RT (10.5 minutes or 630 seconds) = 8 hours GT
1 microcycle = .000175 hours RT ( 0.0105 minutes or 0.63 seconds) =2.28 seconds GT  (micro prefix means 1/1,000,00)


20 years RT = 1,000 cycles = 333,300 days GT = 913 years GT

Plus the 6 years before Flynn disappeared 
 
26 years RT = 1,300 cycles = 433,290 days GT = 1,187 years GT

Note: don't know how long, or if GT has years but it is based on 365 days GT per year GT
