I apologise in advance if I'm not quite getting your point (and I suspect
I'm not), but the example above shows how you would distinguish between two
timer events from different Timer objects.  In particular, the line:

if (evt.target == mytimer)

I hope that this answers your questions.  Please let us know shortly if  
this does not address your concerns.

Andrew.
