Just out of curiosity, whats the -n for?

Dammit, missed that. *grumbles to himself* Thats the thing about coding,
the answer is usually staring you in the face and the eye just loooooves to
slip right over it. When I went looking I was searching on LVL_IMMORT and
.timer (after seeing there was no macro set up in utils.h)

I just want to say thank you, and at the same time mention I'm not an
idiot... just have crappy vision due to glaucoma.
