Summary

Function: string llGetTimestamp( );

Returns a string that is the current date and time in the UTC time zone in the format "YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss.ff..fZ"

   state_entry()
   {
       llSetTouchText("Greet");
   }
   touch_start(integer num)
   {
       list TimeStamp = llParseString2List(llGetTimestamp(),["-",":"],["T"]); //Get timestamp and split into parts in a list
       integer Hour = llList2Integer(TimeStamp,4);
       if(Hour<12)		
           llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL,"Good Morning, Oliver Sintim-Aboagye!");	
       else if(Hour<17)
           llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL,"Good Afternoon, " + llDetectedName(0));		
       else
           llSay(PUBLIC_CHANNEL,"Good Evening, " + llKey2Name(llDetectedKey(0)));
   }
}</lsl>
