::*The CallBack function (apparently after the first 1 second interval) immediately decrements the timer by 1 (to 998) and then calls the function to draw the timer.

::Unfortunately, my Windows search function is acting up, making it difficult to trace relations in the various script files, but it appears to me that the code is <i>supposed</i> to update the timer graphic immediately after initializing the internal timer to 999 by calling itself, but calling itself doesn't actually update the graphic (and accomplishes nothing, as far as I can tell, though this is one of those aspects of the code that I'm not entirely confident with) - since the CallBack function uses different code for that. So, I think it's a programming <u>goof</u>, and not necessarily a <u>glitch</u>.  -{{User:ReverendTed/sig}} 18:10, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
