GREAT! This is going to come in really handy for me, been looking for a simple little desktop timer.
One thing though, this may very well be my fault but when I originally loaded it, the visible property on the relation tab is set to "no". Had it uncheck it to see the timer. Was that intentional? Again very cool, thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. No, that wasn't intentional, i.e. not intentional for consumption by others "out of the box". I have Visible set to "no" b/c I control its visibility with an ObjectController object. That way I can easily hide/unhide it with a separate button. I guess I should change it but I'm not sure that one change would warrant an update.
Thanks again for your comment, and while I'm broadcasting I should mention that this was inspired by "Egg Timer Plus v1.11" by Carl Schell, which is a standalone app for Windows.

How do you make it visible if you can't find it to click on it?

If you look in the Object Navigator you can find its name. Then you right-click on it which will give you some options, among which is Properties. There you can switch the Visibility manually.
Anyway, I've made a new object which is awaiting approval which combines this timer with a clock and stopwatches. This new object deals with issues of visibility, and all other issues I could think off, much more carefully and user-oriented.
