  Subtract 1/24 for an hour. The time function returns a number representing
a fraction of a day - .75 would display as 9 PM.  Be aware that for negative
values the fractional part is treated as a positive, so you will have to
for this by adding 1 if you go below 0.
  Your timer interval is irrelevant.
