trying to figure out an alternative to init() running my timer, maybe I am just not understanding a few things.
I want my timer to run at startup, but I also have a few triggers set up. if a trigger is activated will it reinitialize the module?
if so how can we check if a timer is running and if so execute our functions yet leaving the timer alone?

    // check if timer <name> is set or not
    private function timer_exists($timer)
        $res = in_array($timer, array_keys($this->timerClass->getTimers()));
        if ($res === FALSE)
            return FALSE;
        return TRUE;
