```Ok, thanks Sean, here it is in plain text for anyone who wants to use it.

then

then
end if

local next_calculation

set itemdelimiter to "." -- we are looking at boths sides of the decimal
place
put round(HowMany / 1000) into HowMany -- convert to seconds

// 86,400 seconds in an day
// 3600 in an hour
// 60 seonds in a minute
// replace counts as you go

-- days

end if
