around_filter HELP!!

why do i keep getting the error: it's an Object that has a before and
after method!!!

A filter must be a Symbol, Proc, Method, or object responding to
filter, after or before.

around_filter MyTimer.new

class MyTimer
  def initalize
      @elapsed_time
  end
  def before(controller)
      @start_time = Time.now
  end
  def after(controller)
      @end_time = Time.now
  end
  def elapsed
      @elapsed_time = @end_time - @start_time
  end
end

Not an answer to your question, but you might want to look at the
Benchmark module to provide similar functionality.

guess I'll respond to this to get it back into discussion today when
people are here!!!
