I think this is what I need, but I have a question.....  Since I am 
comparing the date microtime(seconds), won't I need to compare it in 
seconds too?  Won't the different always be less if I don't?  ie.....now 
is/was 1060115992818.  If I compare that to the diff with is 2, it will 
always be less than that..  Just asking for clairfication to make sure my 
brain is screwed on correctly today.  :)
