Timers vs Enter Frame

I was working on a project not too long ago where the original developer was using Timers to time his animations and events firing. It resulted in a pretty horrific view when the app was run on a slower computer. All timings were off, events were not fired, or fired late, even, in some cases, in advance. I did a little bit of research and found this article:

In this article, Keith Peters demonstrate that there is a misconception with the Timer theory of “a millisecond is a millisecond”. A lot of people rely on this theory to justify the use of Timers at the base of their applications.


phenq what is the truth behind this fat burner? Is there really any truth behind this fat burner? Then it sounds kinda interesting, because I agree that I believe that it is important for every person who wants to become a healthier person.

    Any idea if Wade mentioned if AMFEXT will be reqriued? I know a buddy who uses CakePHP a lot is pretty upset that the new CakeAMF requires AMFEXT and that limits it usage on projects w/ clients who can’t afford a VPS that allows custom PHP installs.
