Thanks.  I figured date's conversion functionality probably figured into 
it somewhere, but for CLI output generally invoke a konsole instance, and 
that seemed rather disruptive (too big) for this sort of output, so I 
wondered what you were using.  And asking is easier than spending several 
hours experimenting. =:^)

FWIW, I don't appear to have a notify-send binary installed here, but I 
do see a couple package hits.  But what package provides it for you 
there?  (The ones I see appear to be smaller alternative implementations, 
in case whatever package that normally provides it isn't installed, 
tinynotify-send and sw-notify-send, the latter being a system-wide 
version, presumably cross-user, plus a gentoo-specific eselect module for 
the functionality, which further implies additional implementations to 
select from.)

Meanwhile, google indicates that dbus-send can provide similar 
functionality with an appropriate invocation.  I obviously have that 
(part of dbus), so I have some choices available and experimentation to 
do... =:^)
