@vertigo@djsundog isn’t plesiochronous specifically “nearly synchronised”? Plesiochronous transmissions are when the clocks used are nearly the same frequency, within specific limits, as opposed to the asynchronous posting schedule. “Plesio” being ancient Greek for “near/close”
@sophistoche@djsundog That's how it's used in the telecommunications sense, yes. But it can also mean "almost synchronous" in a sequential sense as well. Every "couple of minutes", for example, where couple could mean "5 minutes give or take 3 minutes as needs require."
