Question asked by VRFuser on May 21, 1998
The trick is to not use a delay object for the entire time slice.  Using
one delay object locks up execution for that amount of time.  Use a For
Loop and put a delay object in the thread for the intervals that you
want to update your countdown timer.  (ex. For Loop set to 60 and delay
set to 60 would generate a ping every minute for an hour.  You could
then use this to generate any  timer string you want.  (ex. "5 minutes
complete", "5 of 60 minutes complete", "2 minutes left"...)

Let me know if you have problems or need examples.
