Doesn't matter; x is a loop index incrementing from 0 in this case.

Actually (correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't:

for(int i = 0; i < TIMEOUT > 0; i++)

translate to:

for(int i = 1; i < TIMEOUT; i++)

rather than:

for(int i = 0; i < TIMEOUT; i++)?

I hav not looked at the actual context of the code, but at least
mathematically that makes more sense to me. i should never be 0 in the
body of the loop, methinks?
