But I shouldn't have to waste valuable screen real estate to tell you what 
the units are after you know the answer.

I wasn't impressed.  I can't tell the difference between "123.4ms" and 
123.4us" at a quick glance.

This may be one of those things where we will have to agree to disagree.  On

there is a decent solution that keeps both of us happy.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
