Thanks, JG. I already use AHK and love it as a sort of typing expander.
So your widget is really neat but I am still scratching my head because I don't really want to convert the minutes and seconds to decimal as in a time clock decimal system of time.
I track time played of media files as a quantity in a spreadsheet that is then multiplied by an hourly rate. If I multiply the total minutes and seconds by a number, I don't get the right thing because the quantity of seconds should be converted since it's based on a sixtieth and should be based on tens to be accurate. Maybe I need to go back to 5th grade!!!!
Thank you very much for sharing your script. I'm going to sleep on it and maybe insight will come ...
