CountDown Timer

SNAGHTMLd734465During our last Week in Review broadcast, I realized we needed a timer which would provide us a visual queue for the start and stop of the broadcast.  Since our show is centered around the start of the hour and lasts for an hour, the programming was rather easy to accomplish.

I built an application which would count down to the hour and flash at the 2min warning and on the hour.  Since I have all these spare monitors on the wall, what better place to put it than up there.

Get it from CNET!

  1. The idea behind this app is to have something run on my computer and stretch to full screen.
    This app is perfect for a New Years countdown, hourly notifications, and more.

    Want it to do something specific? Describe what your wanting in your comments and i’ll modify the app appropriately.

  2. I want to use the timer to make my students practice speaking within limited time (15/20/30/45/60 seconds) How do I adjust it to different time limits? What if I want it to play a ‘beep’ sound when time’s up? I also would love to insert it in a ‘powerpoint’ presentation.
    Thank you. It’s quite the invention I’d been looking for 🙂
