Hi Udo,

Great answer.

I wonder if you need to check timeleft?

At a moment in time, the timeleft may be zero whilst it does some 
processing, to be restarted afterwards... but there is still an instance 
of the object there?

Would the timer be considered to still be running at that point?

I guess it depends whether you want to know what timer is doing nothing, 
just waiting for time to pass, or how many timers you may have running 
at all.

Not sure I've noticed $insts of an object before, guess I never needed 
to know, but good to know now.
