@trickster older microwaves had keypads where you could type in any (four digit) sequence you wanted, so typing in 3 digits would go 0X:XX but two digits would only be 00:XX. that meant you could type as high as 99 seconds before you needed to use three digits
but ... that's not ... what?
what would happen if you typed 1:99? would it count down to 1:00 and then continue with 0:59?
