Computed version
While the computed version is much simpler there is a problem in the logic. Seemingly at random the expression {{0expr(({{CURRENTTIMESTAMP}} 30 round 2 ) mod 10000 ) div 100}} will evaluate to a number like 85.16, generally in the range 85 to 95. Likewise if a value like "20060617131818" is plugged in rather than 'CURRENTTIMESTAMP' it evaluates correctly in most cases, but then will at random display a negative value. I'm not sure what is causing this, but the effect can be seen in the two lines below. Just refresh the screen a few times (less than 10 usually) and you should see the values inexplicably go negative.
 08
 18
Since this happens even with hardcoded text (the second line above has '20060617131818' manually plugged into the formula) it would seem to be a problem with the mathematical evaluation within the 0expr template. The same thing happens with 'CURRENTHOUR'. CBD 13:23, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
 Update  I changed this and 'CURRENTHOUR' to use 'CURRENTTIMESTAMP', but breaking down to the relevant section through subtraction rather than modulus division. The 'negative result' problem is caused by modulus division of large values:
 {{#expr: 20060617131818 mod 10}} = 8
 The above demonstrates the simplest form of the problem. Refreshing will eventually show a negative result. CBD 21:46, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
Could this bug be fixed? Meno25 15:09, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
 I'm going to assume that the bug has been fixed, because I refreshed 15 times cleared the cache 10 times, and clicked the discussion button 7 times. Yamakiri^{T}_{C} 09302007•17:38:07
