How are times of 0.00 seconds possible?

It seems like all code should take some time, if only to run the main method and exit. How is it that so many people get 0.000 seconds for their run times?

It's approximately that much considering the fact that today's computers can execute billions of instructions per second.

apparently, some time around 2008 (look for "new judge" in these boards), the computer which measures the execution time was changed.

as per 2012, I find peculiarities around 0.004 - 0.0040 seconds, code which "clearly" is faster doesn't get a faster execution time.

"clearly" = for me clearly, as in my opinion.

even a simple empty main will now take 0.004...
