Been playing with this for a while now - like to see if anyone can come up with an efficient timer function in javascript. It can be implemented in only a few lines but timing is so poorly integrated in js that I would like to get a few other peoples ideas. Please note that I regard the setInterval and setTimeout as inferior to the needs of many projects. I use a couple of kludges at the moment but I'm trying to hone down my techniques to a few finely tuned pieces of code and a timer is vital to many projects.
