I am looking for timer/countdown software that has the ability to show time or countdown on a big screen and is adjustable on the go... from a seperate window (add time, subtract time and such.
So far the stuff i see has no features of changing the countdown (limit time on the go)
I dont even mind if it is flash Website based...  but it needs to have the features...

Thanks for your advice...

Have you searched the MAC App store? If you search for "timer" you'll be shown dozens of possibilities.

Hey Andreas... your post caught my eye because I have been looking into time management solutions extensively lately.  

I have not seen one instance of a timer that can be manipulated in the way you mention, i.e., adjusting the value of the counter on the fly.

2 things...

1) I think we could be more helpful if you described the application/usage scenario.
There are some complex timers out there, and perhaps a more accommodating method with a better timer is all you really need.

2) I found TimeMe, http://www.timeme.com/ , to have quite a lineup, and if you do not find what you need, I bet they can make it for you (they do custom timer development).

@dmitry: your suggestion has some very useful control and output features. I had not run across that one - nice suggestion.

The suggestions are good... but neither did the adjust on the fly as easy (if at all) as the BoinxTV Clock (Quartz)

Thanks, Andreas.  Would have been helpful to understand the (human) application. Good luck.
