  • Orzeszek Timer is a basic countdown timer for Windows. Just enter a time in just about any format, and hit Enter. Orzeszek Timer will count down to zero and, optionally, notify you with an alarm. Orzeszek Timer accepts a number of formats for specifying the time to count down:
    5 – 5 minutes
    2.5 – 2 minutes 30 seconds
    1d 5h 3m 25s – 1 day 5 hours 3 minutes 25 seconds
    1.05:03:25 – 1 day 5 hours 3 minutes 25 seconds
    1 5 3 25 – 1 day 5 hours 3 minutes 25 seconds
    01/01/2011 – until midnight on 1 January 2011
    01/01/2011 5:00 PM – until 5:00 pm on 1 January 2011
    To turn the alarm on or off, or to change the alarm sound, just right-click and choose the correct setting. You can also add custom .wav files to the Sounds folder and use those instead.
