    DELAY - Added support for delays up to 585 million years (requires Vista or later).

    I figure that's about the largest FILETIME value or the largest 64-bit unsigned number of 100-nanoseconds. I'm just curious ... does Vista+ have a feature that allows this and is missing in earlier versions of Windows?

    GetTickCount64()?

    My calculation was off. 585,000,000 years is more like the max for a 64-bit
    tick counter (millisecs).
