    Sticky: bit rusty

    I'm a bit rusty. cuz I got the results I need and stopped. I see that there has been extensive refinement of the concept.

    I agree with mike. The large number is probably something significant in base 2. Think of it 13:15:21.858 as "infinity plus 1" and you get the idea
