Thanks for this very useful and good-looking screenlets.

Just a little request: Prepaid broadband is in wide use in our country. Can you create a timer that also keeps track of/displays how much is being charged from our prepaid account (Example: an hour of usage will cost 50 cents)?

and can the countdown timer be set to ring 5 minutes before it expires so that the user will be forewarned?

Again thanks.

Hi thanks for your comment.

Sorry that I answered so late, but I stupidly overlooked your comment.

Your suggestions sounds good, especially the last one. I think I will do it.

For the idea with the prepaid costs, I think it will be better to make an new screenlet only for this use. Possibly by using the code off this screenlet.

Nice script. Works well for me (Ubuntu 8.10).

Maybe some suggestions for a future development:

- to add a bell that we could set to sound at a preset time. It would allow the timer to be used as a cooking timer, per example, or as a timer for games, etc.

- a pause button could also be useful, per example, to time tasks

Only suggestions, anyway.

Good work

Hi,

thank you for your suggestions.

- I had the idea for a ring sound too, but I have actually the problem that I don't know how to do this. My knowledge in pyhton programming is limited ;-) Hope I can find out how to do this or maybe some of you can tell me.


- A pause button will be added with the next update. I think I can release it in the next few days.

just use aplay "sound.wav"

Using ALSA's aplay feature is a good work-around, since the system bell function ("beep"), using the PC speaker, is broken in Ubuntu and from my research on the subject has been broken for a long time. Actually, "wrecked" would be a more apt term, as someone decided years ago that the bell signal was annoying and took steps to disable it. Moreover, some systems may not even have a speaker in them, or the speaker is a tiny piezoelectric sounder on the motherboard that puts out such a low sound as to make it virtually inaudible.

This is great. Could you make it count "UP"?

I think that should be possible, with the next update I can try to add such a function.
