Why are you using so many instance variables (atvars or @vars)? If you
removed the @'s it might add to the readability of your code. Also, I
believe that you are calculating the time wrong, but I am not quite sure.
Also, the intent and structure of your code is confusing. Try extracting
some more methods.

If I am not right, please let me know.
