What about ticks? Is it that seconds are converted into ticks or the  
other way around? I assume the other way around as ticks are shorter  
than seconds.

Citing the docs: "The ticks function returns the total number of  
ticks since midnight GMT, January 1, 1970, rather than the total  
number of ticks since the last system startup."
