You could do

	uptime|cut -d' ' -f15|cut -c1,3,4

Assuming your load average never goes over 999% (which is entirely possible)
If you wanna really hack something horrible together, you could do something
more like

	uptime|cut -d' ' -f15|wc --chars

then if it's 6, you only have 1 digit before the decimal point, so you cut
out 1,3,4, or if it's 7 you cut out chars 1,2,4,5.

Will that be ugly enough? :)
