I get the current hour on my computer, "00" minutes, and 54 seconds.
with twelvehourtime true => 4:00:54, and false => 16:00:54
using 4 => 16:00:04
using 124 => 16:02:04 (124 seconds past the current hour)
using 3600 => 17:00:00 (3600 seconds, or 60 min past the current hour)
thus if using only seconds, the function returns the time x seconds after
the top of the current hour. Wonder how you could used this? Perhaps in
programming a clock.
