EggTimer is a simple timer that is sort of like the cooking timer you might find in many kitchens. You set a time in minutes, it counts down the time, and an alarm goes off when the time has elapsed.
It starts with the counter running. It remembers the number of minutes to count from the last time it was run. It can start minimized and you can see the counter running in the minimized icon on the task bar. When the alarm goes off, it restores itself to the screen and flashes a few times. Just click close and it is gone. Just 2 clicks. One to start, one to close. Very simple.
It has a couple more bells and whistles. It can play any .WAV file as the alarm. It can count down or up. It can count from 0 to 9999 minutes. To keep things simple, the count time is entered in whole number minutes. Most egg timers work this way. It can also be run in clock mode where it will show the time of day instead of running the timer.
I shipped EggTimer with a few sample .WAV files. You can probably find quite a few more in your C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA directory. EggTimer has a popup dialog window to select the file and a test button to preview the sound.

I am PayPal Verified. My Account Creation Date is May 30, 2000. Yes, I have been using this PayPal account for over TWENTY years.
The Official PayPal Verified Seal above means that I have provided PayPal with proof that I have a bank account and that my address is valid. Banks are required by law to screen account holders so PayPal's verification process increases security when you pay parties you do not know. My bank has my address and Social Security number on file. I have been using PayPal for over 20 years.
I use PayPal because the fees are low. If you send me $5.00 PayPal only takes about $0.45 so I net $4.55. All other payment services take several dollars so I would have to charge $8 or more for my program to gain the same net. This lowers the cost to you. PayPal is usually free for most transactions, such as Ebay auction payments, but as a business I am required to have a Premier Account with fees. If you do not have a PayPal account, you can still use PayPal to make a payment using your credit card. PayPal does not charge you any fees for this. PayPal is a very secure and reliable payment system used by millions of people around the world.
