An post in 2005/2006 asked about creating a timer or perhaps more accurately a timer event in Mathematica. The responses recommend using JLink and an AddPerioical routine described in the JLink documentation in version 5.2. I'd like to create a timer event or perhaps a number of such timer events such that Mathematica would run some function or take some action at a specified time. Can one do this any more directly in Mathematca, without using JLink? Thanks
