The idea of a timer is that it just sits there and fires an event every 'n' milliseconds. You can then attach code to be run when that event occurs.

Just as a trivial example, say you wanted to create a clock. You might set a timer to fire every second (1000 milliseconds) and when it does, you'd update the picture and maybe make a "tick" sound.
