Golden Micro Solutions Ltd Announces The Big Red Button 1.5.1
The Big Red Button is a simple one-click timer/stopwatch.
Whether you will find this application useful or not, will depend very much
on how you work at your computer. The program itself was designed to solve
one very specific requirement that we had — we needed a very quick and
easy way to start recording a block of time, while sitting in front of a
Other timing applications can be great and very useful (e.g.TimeSlice by
Maui Software), and usually after several minutes of inactivity the timer
automatically turns off. However, there are times, such as when the phone
rings, or when someone walks into the office when these ‘auto-pause’
features are not what is needed.
In these cases some form of stopwatch to record the amount of time spent in
the unexpected activity is required — thus the Big Red Button was born.
Double-click the application and it will start timing. Press the start/stop
button to turn it on/off. The top portion of the window is editable, so you
can modify times, add notes and so on. The notes section can be printed, or
you can use drag and drop to drag it someplace else.
The Big Red Button will run on all PowerPC-based Macintosh computers. It
requires 800K of free RAM, and a minimum of System 7.1.
A Windows version is also available at our web site.
The Big Red Button is freeware and is available for download at
