Thanks. This works pretty well :-) But just wondering why the smallest unit for time() is 0.00_001 but not 0.000_001?

    Meh, did I only do a one-hundred-thousandth of a second? Always getting my decimal places mixed up! Use whatever fraction of a second you like, but be aware of the limits of floating point numbers.
