Helps you catch your commuter rail
T-on-Timeruns on either Windows or Macintosh. T-on-Time makes use of the various Internet data feeds which the MBTA has provided (you must be connected to the Internet for the application to work).
T-on-Time is compact as possible - taking up very little room on your desktop. T-on-Time is composed of 3 parts. The first is a countdown timer, which let's you know when to leave the office.
The timer is synchronized with the U.S. government (or NIST) time servers so even if your computer clock is incorrect, the timer will be correct.
The second is a real time feed of the alerts which affect your commute. The third is a real-twitter feed reader which allows your Twitter friends to provide real-time updates - in case the alerts are not enough.
To set your preferences, hit click "setup" at the top of T-on-Time. A popup window should appear.
Please note that if you are not connected to the Internet, the settings/setup screen may not work properly. This is because the full list of train stops and times come from the Internet - they are not part of T-on-Time.
