You need not do that.

If the AVERAGE is per second, and if you know there are 168*3600 seconds
in one week, the total equals the average times 168*3600.  That is easely
done using a CDEF and (G)PRINT.  Also see the list archives.

You *are* asking for it ... :)

Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give
offence. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit
communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about
solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.
