Cool Timer Handy Timer Solution With Many Coo...

Handy timer utility with many cool features. Can be used like an oven timer in countdown mode, an alarm clock, or a stopwatch. Unique visualization feature shows time passage graphically using any of several high-quality, built-in images or any image on your computer. In countdown mode, the image is gradually wiped away or revealed in a radial, clock-like, sweep pattern in sync with the time as it passes. This is good for kids who can' t yet comprehend time passage using digits to understand how much time is left on the counter or for adults who prefer a visual representation of time as opposed to digits. This feature can be quickly and easily toggled on or off at any time. Use any of several built-in alarm sounds or any sound file on your computer. Countdown mode is great for teachers or parents to set a time limit for kids' tasks or activities. There is even a customizable, scrolling marquee message that can pop up when the alarm sounds. You can enter any text for the message and even specify the text color. Use the program in alarm clock mode to wake you up at any time of day using any sound you choose as an alarm. There is also a configurable snooze feature that silences the alarm temporarily for a short amount of time that you specify so you can sleep a little longer. Stopwatch mode is great to keep track of how much time you spend on a particular project if you are charging customers by the hour. It uses precision down to hundredths of a second. You can save preset time lengths and alarm clock times in countdown and alarm clock mode to re-enter them quickly and easily should you need to use the same times frequently. Several instances of the program can be run simultaneously to time several things at once. Each instance can be labeled in its title bar to uniquely identify what is being timed by each one. The program' s digits can be enlarged to full-screen size if you need to see them from a great distance.
Cool Timer by Harmony Hollow Software is essentially a computer software version of a countdown timer or oven-like timer, but also can be used in other modes such as an alarm clock or stopwatch. The program has become widely used by teachers and parents to set time limit for kids to perform different tasks or activities and sound an alarm when their allotted time has expired.
The new version of the program has been entirely rewritten in the Visual Basic . NET programming language after the original source code (written in Visual Basic 6) was lost due to a hardware malfunction.
The most notable new feature included in the update is its “ visualization” feature. This feature was suggested by a friend of the author who at the time was homeschooling young children. The kids could not yet comprehend time passage being represented by digits and needed a visual illustration of how much time was left on the timer. So, the author implemented the ability to display an image on the program interface and have it either gradually “ wiped away” or revealed in a radial sweep pattern in sync with the time as it counts down when the program is used in countdown mode. The program has many built-in high resolution images from which to choose for this feature and also allows users to choose any image file on their computers.
The program has always featured the ability to operate in three different modes: countdown, alarm clock, or stopwatch. Another notable new feature in this version is the ability to specify the mode in which the program starts. For example, if a users uses the program primarily as a stopwatch to track how much time he or she spends on projects, the program can be configured to always start in stopwatch mode or remember the “ last-used” mode and start in that mode.
Also new in this version, many more built-in sounds have been added to use as the alarm that sounds when time expires in countdown mode or when the set time is reached in alarm clock mode. Users can also use any sound file or MP3 on their computer.
Another added feature is the ability to run several instances of the program and label each instance in its title bar so that users know what is being timed by each instance.
As with most other offerings from this author, Cool Timer was originally written to fulfill a specific need he had in everyday life. He needed a convenient way to fairly apportion and regulate time spent on the computer between his 3 children. Since offering the program to the public, feedback has suggested that many teachers and parents have found it useful for similar purposes.
