This is just another great example why the Forum is so much better a venue than this list. It would take a lot of work to reformat the OP’s code example into something workable in the SE.

Do a little subtraction and you get 1 yr, 0 months, 15 days, 3 hours, 24 mins, 0 secs.

>> Anyone ever done a count up timer? For example, if we supply the seconds of 1605553200, we want to display the number of years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds since that time. For example, "How long have you been alive?". This needs to be precise – need to account for leap years, days in month, etc.
