I was under the impression that the {Qoylu’pu’} method of time used a 12-hour clock instead of a 24-hour clock. {wa’maH loSvatlh rep = cha’logh Qoylu’pu’}

Am I wrong about this?

In the newsgroup message we read that this way to say the time also works with the 24-hour system (which is common in Europe), so I guess we can say for example *wa'maH chorghlogh Qoylu'pu'*. Should I say for midnight *cha'maH loSlogh Qoylu'pu'* or something with *zero*? And is there a way to tell the minutes when using *Qoylu'pu'*?
