Don't forget though, the new millennium starts Jan. 1 2001

The Jan 1 2000 date is total BS

Here's proof:

Subject: FLASH: Flash Millenium Clock

I'm trying to create a Flash 4 millenium clock using the GetTimer function,
like this:

Set Variable: "lasttime" = int ( GetTimer / 200 )
Loop While (int (GetTimer / 200) = lasttime)
End Loop
Set Variable: "msec" = msec - 1

My clock works but consumes FAR too much processor time in the browser. I
think the loop above doesn't allow any other applications a timeslice.

Is there any way around this, or another means of creating a Flash clock?
