No, that still gives 0 seconds.
I think this whole thing is dependent on the fact that `date +%s`

being, I'll just use an if..then..else to say "less than 1 second" or
the actual number of seconds.
I've looked at the time command suggested by Jez, haven't tried it yet.
Geeeezz, why don't they include some *SIMPLE* examples in the man pages?
