Very nice, but Peter explained that he's 'seriously math deficient'. I
wrote mine so he might understand whats going on and be able to amend it if
it doesn't quite suit his needs.

We'll see which one he adopts ;-)

The rounding isn't for the thumbposition, as it's clearly from -5 to 5. My
understanding is the thumbpostion determines an output that has to be in
whole seconds, which is why in some cases I used the round() function.

But then again I failed English so maybe I completely misunderstood what
Peter was trying to achieve with his slider. :-(
