Heh! I'm famous! LOL!

Anyhow, Rand... my script will do what you want. To use it for what you're trying to do, here's the format you'd want to use:
//echo -a $DateXpander($calc($ctime - $ctime(Aug 27 1978 00:00)))Hm... I'm getting old...
Ok, this seems more complicated because of needing to calculate the duration you need. You could set a variable...
var %duration = $calc($ctime - $ctime(Aug 27 1978 00:00))
echo -a $DateXpander(%duration)
Note that if you don't want to go back from today's date, you can replace $ctime with $ctime(date time) using the same format as the second half of that $calc. If you do this, you MUST include the "startdate".
Here's an example:
var %duration = $calc($ctime(Jan 19 2009 5:14) - $ctime(Aug 27 1978 00:00))
echo -a $DateXpander(%duration,01/19/2009)
One final note... if you already know the duration (in seconds or in the $duration format), then you just need to insert that into the $DateXpander identifier without using the $calc part.
If you have any questions, just ask on mircscripts.org or here.
