Hi Jann,

Yeah, thanks for picking that up. Yes I will reset the timer. Just a
question, so at line 78 if I removed if (events & EV_TIMEOUT) { }
check will it be an issue. I dont see anything else calling this call back
apart from this event. May be EV_ERROR perhaps?
Also if you have time revert the code I pasted back to original problem as
stated in my first post and check the result.

Will you be able to tell me theoretically what was going on? I still not
aware of what exactly went wrong. Also I have been
using this manual for development. I could
not find ev_now_update() so wondering if there is better
and more update manual with examples to learn from?
