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!
