Hi

Even a “tenth of second” running display is not of much use to the human eye. Most 
OS’s will struggle with a “hundredth’s of second” display in terms of getting it through 
the display formatting code. Finding a monitor and display card that will do 1KHz refresh 
rates / frame rate will be tough for your 1 ms digit. 

Now, doing all that with an LED display …. not all that hard. Your eyes still limit out at
the same point so the 0.0x and 0.00x digits are just a smear…. ummm …. errr …. been 
there / done that ….
