I think it would be sweet to have like a switch for a timer to make sure it re-evaluates everytime it triggers (rather then having to use those pesky $!time thingies).

Multiple commands per timer would be sweet too.

Code:
.timer 1 0 {
  do first thing
  do second thing
  do last thing
}


tell me what you think!

For idea #2 what's wrong with using the timer to execute an alias with those commands in it?

hehe

Both of my suggestions aren't really 'needed' per se (the first one can also just call an alias that will re-evaluate).

However i still think it would be neat to have them implemented, as it would make (timer) code much cleaner.

i really like the idea multiple commands for timers
i made a work around to this using a text file with multiple commands and having it play with the timer command but its not the same as having them handy with the timer command and have to edit a different file

why dont you just make an alias and let /timer run the alias... aren't it the same?

umm maybe I'm missing the point
.timerdosomething 3 40 { do this | do that | do other }
never had any unexpected results
