in thread How long 'tween now and then?

A most interesting update, though it'd chew too much CPU time. Just as I was falling asleep last night, it occured to me to loop through sleeping for an hour or so until the day changes, then figure the seconds after that (which would get rid of the 'exceptions' like end of month/year).

Since this will all be compiled into an EXE (for the sake of ease), the fewer big ol' modules like Date::Calc I have to include, the better. Something just bugs me about adding several hundred K to an EXE just to figure out what time it is...
