Converting a string to time - simple task but don't know how to do it!

  import time
  s = "<<your time string>>"
  t = time.strptime(s)

I think strptime is only supported on Unix?

So if you get an AttributeError when you try that, your best best is to use
the mx.DateTime package (a google search should find that).

mx.DateTime works like this:

  import mx.DateTime
  d = mx.DateTime.DateTimeFrom(your_time_string)
  d2 =
  diff = d2 - d1
  print diff

// m
