Thanks for the heads up, the fairly uncharacteristic grammar faux pas has been corrected.

Thanks, Jeremy. I actually don't agree that "There's" is proper use with "less than", either. Either of these would work: "There is one hour left" or "There are two or more hours left". I guess it just depends on how many hours ARE left.
Regards,
Bill
