Hi, For the past week or so I've been pulling my hair out trying to diagnose what's going on with my website. Prior to that, everything was working perfectly. I've made no changes that I was aware of. There is no pattern to this...sometimes I can connect to the web server over the Internet,

It certainly is perplexing. It is, isn't it? Yes. I've had similar impossible problems in the past. One time it turned out to be a broken network cable, and the other time it was just my inability to fathom the somewhat obscure way a particular device implemented packet

Charles, This will set bc precision to 5 decimal places: et=`echo scale=5 ; $end_time - $start_time | bc` Ohhh, I was really hoping on that one...but no, it still reports 0 seconds. Maybe there's something in the script itself that's messing this up. Here is the entire script:

Can I refine it to give me something like: .784 seconds? Use bc -l instead of bc. That should do it. No, that still gives 0 seconds. I think this whole thing is dependent on the fact that `date +%s` reports integers. I'm still interested in something like .874 seconds, but for the time
