My search through the code has yielded no such usage of the timer 
by the Super Extended Code at all. I also do not see where there is 
any patch in the blink routines to allow for the GIME timer to control 
the blink time. 

I maybe wrong and have not found any reference to the GIME timer 
usage though.

This does seem to support the basic belief that the GIME timer was 
for program development for games or other means.
