prime time
Jump to user comments
(From TV programming) Normal high-usage hours on a
time-sharing system; the day shift. Avoidance of prime time
was traditionally given as a major reason for night mode
hacking. The rise of the personal workstation has rendered
this term, along with time-sharing itself, almost obsolete.
The hackish tendency to late-night hacking runs has changed
not a bit.
