SIK Guide v4.0a - Project 4A: LCD "Hello World!"

This was cool seeing the LCD display in action for the first time. This project was identical to the LCD project #7 from the SIK Guide v3.3. Editing the message was as easy as changing the text inside of the quotation marks in the: lcd.print(" "); line.

Unfortunately, I was unable to successfully create a clock. I spent a while playing around with this using the millis(); command but didn't get it to work the way I wanted it to. I was able to print the seconds and have it increment minutes once it reached 60 seconds (60000 millisecconds) but the seconds would continuously increase and not restart at 0.
