My problem with that [#line] is that it doesn't work as close as possible 
to [line] and [line~].

My policy is that if you have both [#something] and [something] in pd, the 
"#" one should work in a guessable way, by analogy. I feel guilty of 
naming [#for] like that, because it isn't an exact equivalent of 
GridFlow's gridless [for].

Apart from that, you have four bugs in your timer, as it doesn't multiply 
hours properly, and it is discontinuous around midnight, but also, it 
doesn't follow logical-time, and it's not precise enough (because of the 
float precision limit). You can fix all four together by switching to 
using [metro] or [delay]. This probably means changing the majority of 
your patch.

When it gets closer to working like [line], I will test it again and help 
you with the rest.
