Some people think you can never have too much precision...

While writing data to a DVD with growisofs, it reported a transient error:

:-? the LUN appears to be stuck writing LBA=310h, retry in 141ms
141 milliseconds? Why not 140 milliseconds? Does the extra 0.001 of a second really make such a difference? 141ms isn't even a simple fraction of a second (it's a little less than one seventh).
