In other news, I'm taking baby steps with a new module I'm working on. I figured I'd start simple - get the bootime (btime) and wrap it as an extension. Sounds easy, right? Well, the problem is when I tried it at home, the results of the C call 'getutxent()' and the btime value of the 'stat' file were 19 seconds different.
sigh...why can't anything be easy?
