A timer can be a standard countdown for a user-defined number of days-hours-minutes-seconds or a countdown to a user-defined date (day-month-year and hour-minutes-seconds).
When the timer fires, you can choose to be notified by a beep or an alert sheet, to launch an app or a script or to shut down your computer.
To create a new timer, select "New Timer" from the "File" menu, or press command-N. A new timer window should automatically appear on screen when you launch the application. Each timer is an independent document, that you can save to disk. However, even if you don't want to save the file to disk, you can assign the timer a name typing it in the appropriate text field. This lets you identify the timer any time.
If you want to run a conventional countdown, you can set days-hours-minutes-seconds.
