    Re: in no time

    I am not a teacher.

    It means that he wrote it very fast and it took much less time than the usual time. So that compared to the usual time, his time is almost nothing.

    If you read a book in 30 minutes and everyone else reads it in 10 hours, then you read it in notime!
