I find PithHelmet just about indispensable. Every time I have to do without it I''m horrified by the visual pollution I have to endure.

It's also effectively free but I it's well worth a donation.

Thank you Mike Solomon.

Contrary to DBRENNAN I think this little application is perfectly respectable and very effective (and I've tried all the titles mentioned). I like the control it affords for easily setting timers seconds, minutes or even years in advance.

It has some quirks and there are refinements needed:
- selecting "Show main window" from the menu bar menu doesn't bring the app to the front which makes it a little pointless.
- the time format can be changed but can't be reset to the "factory default". (In fact I can't seem to restore it at all, maybe after a reboot... or else I'll have to hunt down the prefs file and kill it.)
- it definitely needs an option to suppress the dock icon for long-term use and convenience.
- it would be ideal if the the dock and menu bar icons showed the current time, after all they are clock-like. I realise this wasn't intended as a clock replacement but it's unfortunate that it creates on-screen clocks that are wrong most of the time (i.e. whenever it's not 12:07).
