WHAT IS IT?
===========

Egg-Time Counter is a simple count-down timer application.


HOW TO USE IT
=============

Use the "Timer/Set..." Menu to open the dialog to set the timer. Use the up-down arrows to adjust the start time in hours (0 to 99), minutes (0 to 59) and seconds (0 to 59), or enter the start time using the keyboard. Press the 'Set' button to set the timer to the selected start time. Then use the "Timer/Start" and "Timer/Stop" menus to start and stop the timer. Once the count-down has ended, an alert window will open and system beeps will be played in 1 second intervals until the alert window is dismissed by pressing the 'OK' button.
At any time, use the "View/Toggle Fullscreen" menu to switch between windowed and fullscreen mode.
While the timer is running, any active screensaver will be suspended.
