comment How was the system clock first used in early computers?
@DanPichelman: That doesn't necessarily required a wall clock equivalent - a tick counter would be enough. Your task starts running - the counter value is saved in your session. Your task stops running - the stored value is subtracted from the current counter value and that's how long your task has been running.

Okay, so UNIVAC maybe had separate system clock, but would it use it for?
