I miss this software!
Who else is making an onscreen countdown timer that can put on a ppt while also leaving the ppt slide itself up?

You put the finger on it, you did. Insults have no place on a community site (or in any other environment for that matter). It serves no purpose and just brings on a taste of bitterness. Why do some people treat others with so little respect? Beats me. I have, as you and most others, nothing but respect and gratitude to all these hard working developers. Without whom I would have a less easy and less sufficient work environment and for that matter, a duller one as well. A few of the developer I have gotten a personal contact with and they are lovely and delightful people. I can't do what these experts do, so fare play to ye all. Well done, indeed. And don't ye go listen to begrudgers at all.

Web-Master. Please extend your blacklist to include insulting behavior and backbiting.

Looks great, works fine for me. The translucent floating window is cool. I won't be buying it myself, because $6 seems too steep for something I rarely need on my computer. But at least it's a well-written program.

it could really use a menu dockable feature and a shortcut to pause.

One major flaw in an application that's called WatchIt -

Is why can't it just display the time if it's not being used
as a stopwatch.

Seems like a sensible idea to have all the functions of a good
alarm clock or wrist watch rather than just being only an
application that is emulating a stopwatch.

If it had this duel aspect I might purchase and WatchIt.

In reference to "anonymous" who wrote: "Plenty of cool FREE clocks at resexcellence, why pay this muppet $5 (4/6/2004, Version: 0.2)"

I've discovered this individual has posted many very negative comments on this site. He can never be satisfied and will never be grateful for those individuals who make an effort to support the Mac platform.

To all developers - keep up the great work! It makes a difference.

The current version uses 0.00% to 2.00% of my CPU on a 1GHz G4. Older versions did have a bug that caused excessive CPU use, but this has been fixed for a long time.

Anyone can be insulting with little intelligence, but it takes charm and maturity to be constructive.

How many apps have you written?

Would you perchance be related to Kermit the frog?

Would be nice if you could turn off the seconds and milliseconds. If you're timing a long session of work, the milliseconds especially are quite annoying.

Nice and simple, though, and that's what it should be.

aqtinc had trouble on 02 Dec 2006
Does anyone else out there have a Mac Pro? I've used this little app for about a year (PowerBook, PowerMac, and lastly MacBook) with no trouble.

I tried to install this on my new Mac Pro, and it won't accept my registration number. I paid the $, got registration, and now it rejects the registration as "invalid".

The only difference that I can ID is the Xeon chips, and I can't for the life me understand why that matter at all.

Also, support e-mail has changed. I'm now waiting for a reply.
