Is there an easy way to convert the value gotten by using "timestamp()" into something easier to understand like "01:12:23 pm"?

Since timeStamp() returns milliseconds, you just have to go through the paces of extracting the seconds, minutes, and hours, then devising a way to "pretty-print" the results. Here's a function that does the trick for the specific format you wanted (see attached).
