If you are referring to my code reprogramming system timer 0, my Interrupt 8 handler is coded so the previous Interrupt 8 handler gets called at close to the normal rate, so any BIOS or DOS timer based on Interrupt 8 will function normally.

Well Microsoft, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten us into.
