It's ok -- the example was a "subtle" indication. It really comes down to
whether you salt something while cooking or leave it to guests to salt to
taste, doesn't it?

Fractions are just passed through directly.
ConvertSeconds(the round of XXX)
makes sure seconds is always a whole number. One rounds off, the other drops
the fractional part.
Rounds to tenths of a second (but doesn't provide fixed digits in the
result; even seconds will not show the decimal point or fractional part).
A millisecond is one thousandth of a second, i.e. three digits after the
period. In this case, you would indeed modify the function, to ensure a
fixed number of digits after the decimal. You'd pad out with zeros and then
take the first N digits you wanted. You could even add a parameter to the
function to dynamically specify how many digits are required.

The more updates you do, the slower your program may potentially run.

Scott Rossi recently (within last week or two) posted a link to a music
player he built which does something like this... you might want to check it
