seconds 
Floating Point Number - The current system uptime in seconds.

DetailsEdit

Contrary to what some believe, this does not return your current session time, time since launching the game, or time since the last patch. It returns the time since your own computer booted up.
In Windows, this is acquired through the Windows kernel function GetTickCount(), divided by 1000.
