Yes that one I found. Altho current time is rarely part of it. Its time on 
the file, then that time plus 32 hours, then comes now-time when Im trying 
to get the difference between go-time and now-time then convert those 
epochs back into hours and seconds. I have trouble with math if it uses 
more than one operation on a line. This gave me headache
