[nos-bbs] Update - Timer issues in JNOS

I like the idea of a week counter better than a '20 day' counter.  But since we 
are taking a close look at this stuff, why not just use the GNU C library 
provided- 'struct timeval'.  It supplies seconds and microseconds.  I believe 
there are also a number of helper functions available to convert/manipulate this

Why not a week counter?   We think in weeks but not 20 days...
Makes sense to say NOS was running 3 weeks and 2 days but not 1 20day
and 3 days...

PS.  JNOS will be back on the air full time in a day or two here.
