I'm still pretty fresh to LISP in general, but this would be my first

| (defun yesterday-time ()
|   (let ((1day-lsw (% 86400 (<< 1 16)))
|       (1day-msw (/ 86400 (<< 1 16)))
|       (now (current-time)))
|     (list
|       (+ (car now) 1day-msw) 
|       (+ (car (cdr now)) 1day-lsw) 
|       (car (cdr (cdr now))))))

The main thing to remember is integers in Emacs are 28 bits I guess.

You mean you don't want to watch WRESTLING from ATLANTA?
