I could not provide examples of the problem because there were none, as 
the display was showing just the current time and nothing else happened 
as I expected it to do according to the code.

The snippet of code you see is the code taken from the code of the said 
project I linked  to in my first post.

I only provided or posted it to show what should happen next after the 
time was displayed.
