Hello,

I use timers in my app, but after a while , begins to have delays on timers, these delays will grow over the time.

I throught of some solutions to this problem, and if anyone has other, I would learn.

1st - We always run function at the same time according to the system time.
2nd - Everyday reset the timer.

How to call a function in accordance with the system clock?
How to repeat this function every 2 hours until the funtion is canceled?

Thanks in advance,
ocaccy
