Hi all,

I am trying to use orgmode to bill for time.  My idea is to add a column
that multiplies the elapsed time column by an hourly rate.
Unfortunately, the elapsed time is interpreted (I believe) as a fraction
in calc, so, for example, a time of 0:58 becomes a zero.

Is there a way to make the elapsed time get formatted as a decimal, or a
function to convert it to a decimal, so I can multiply the time by a
decimal and get teh right answer.

Here is what I'm getting now, using 50 as a multiplier:
