date/time comparison

Hello.  I have a situation in flash 8 where i need my movie to show different things based on the time of day it is.  like from 12 AM to 3:59:59 PM i need it to show some things and from 4 PM to 11:59:59 PM i need it to show other things.  Can someone provide some AS that will get something like this done?  i realize it's based off of the users system time.  i'm not really concerned about the year/month/day.  just the hours, minutes and seconds of whatever day.

thanks!

mm=dDate.getMinutes()

// 0 <= ss <=60

the following code shows how you can compare time.

Hours value ranges from 0 - 23. Lemme know if you need the source file.

code info:
-----------
timeDisp is a movie clip symbol instance.

code:
------

var myDate:Date =new Date();
date=myDate.getDate();
hours=myDate.getHours();
mins=myDate.getMinutes();
secs=myDate.getSeconds();

if(hours>=6&&hours<16)//day
{
      timeDisp.gotoAndStop(1);
}
else if(hours>=16&&hours<20)//evening
{
      timeDisp.gotoAndStop(2);
}
else if(hours>=20&&hours<6)//night
{
      timeDisp.gotoAndStop(3);
}
