    Hey Dan, think you can help me? I want to make for a program of mine (a bot for Discord) a constant update on what "game" it's playing. Most of the bots use the games to show how to use the bot by setting it to their help command. However, I made a little customizable part, and I want my bot to check, let's say, every second if it changed. I'm not sure how to make setInterval do that, do you know by accident? If you need the code, just reply and I'll paste it.

    This video is amazing! Daniel, If you've got a spare moment i'd love your help! I've got my simulation running by clicking on a button which sets off setInterval. When I click the button again it runs two simulations which makes canvas freak out. How can I clear the first simulation with the button then make the next simulation run over it? Thank in advance man!

    Hi Daniel, could you explain how the timer stops when you click the button again. I see your using an if else statement but how does it know to stop the timer? example) if ( !interval ){ interval = setInterval(); } else { clearInterval ( interval ); interval = false; }
