    To make things clear, I can afford a brief addition.

    1. to crunch = to process, usually in a time-consuming or complicated way. Connotes an essentially trivial operation that is nonetheless painful to perform.

    2. to crunch = to squeeze program source into a minimum-size representation that will still compile or execute = to compress date

    crunch - a critical moment or situation, especially one that occurs because of a shortage of time or resources.

    time crunch is the period of time immediately before a project (or other timetabled item) is due

    The search engine "TheFind.com" is a program, that crunched your time by shopping on-line.
