8. From the Fluid Homepage, go to My Preferences.
9. Expand the Regional Settings group and set Time Format to 24 hour clock. Save.
    Note: If the Time Format was already set to 24 hour clock, inspect the table PSUSERPRSNLOPTN for useroptn = 'TFRMT' and make sure that there is no row for such option, or that the USER_OPTION_VALUE column is set to M.
             SELECT * from PSUSERPRSNLOPTN where useroptn = 'TFRMT';
