Meaning of SAME-DAY SERVICE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

An ironic term used to describe long response time, particularly with respect to ms-dos system calls (which ought to require only a tiny fraction of a second to execute). Such response time is a major incentive for programmers to write programs that are not well-behaved.

See also pc-ism.
