It could be replicated using a single high-res timer and signals for those who wanted it. It just seems 'messy' for it to be a built-in event. I mean, would the timer always be running even if you had no 'on TIME' events? Or would mIRC check for the presence of an 'on TIME' event before creating the timer and then constantly monitor for the presence of one? Both ways seem pretty wasteful, especially for something provided just for convenience.
