I'm trying to get an auto-refresh timer working, but can't seem to get it to refresh at any interval above 1000, what am I doing wrong?
<script type= "text/javascript">
// BEGIN Tail
// Tail catcher
var tail = $("#tail").val();
if ( tail != "off" ) {
var tail_timerID = 0;
function refresh()
    if (tail_timerID)
    var url = $("#postvars").val();
    var getdata = $.get("includes/portlets/portlet-table.php?"+url, function(data){
    var delay = $("#tail").val();
    tail_timerID = setTimeout("refresh()",60000);
// END Tail
