Reminds me of working on Telematics S200/300/4000/5000 telecomms kit in 
the early 90s where the timers were mains based, so a one hour timer 
would go off at about one hour, 30 seconds.  Programming becomes such 
fun working around such things :)

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
