    Default timers don't work in IE8

    My timers do not work in IE8. IF anyone could offer some assistance as to why, it would be appreciated.

    var timers = {};
    var load = function(){
    var update = function(){
    var T = $(this);
    var id = T.attr('id');
    var time = T.val().split(':');
    time = (time[0] * 60) + time[1];
    timers[id] = {
    max: parseInt(time, 10),
    current: 0,
    time: T,
    timeup: $('#'+id+'C'),
    start: $('#'+id+'S'),
    reset: $('#'+id+'R')

    $('input.timedown').on('change', update);

    $('input[value="Start"]').on('click', function(){
    var T = $(this);
    var name = T.attr('name');
    timers[name].on = true;
    timers[name].reset.attr('disabled', false);
    T.attr('disabled', true);

    $('input[value="Reset"]').on('click', function(){
    var T = $(this);
    var name = T.attr('name');
    timers[name].on = false;
    timers[name].current = 0;
    timers[name].start.attr('disabled', false);
    T.attr('disabled', true);

    $.each(timers, function(i){
    if(this.on) {
    if(this.current > this.max) {
    alert('Time up!');
    this.on = false;
    this.current = 0;
    }, 1000);

    JavaScript is not Java.
