    Default Good timer application for cubing.

    Hi,

    I was looking for a good timer app but couldn't find one wich satisfies my needs. What i need is a timer wich can do the following:

    Let me start and stop the timer with the spacebar.
    Save my times with the date of the solve to a .txt file.
    Give a random scramble.

    I couldn't find one so i decided to make one my self, but it was really hard to learn how to. I managed to make the application but it can't produce a random scramble.(I never programmed before so i really don't know how to do it, it took me hours to learn and make it)

    If you guys are interested, you can download it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/27431020/KubusTimer.exe

    If you guys know one that satisfies my needs, then i would like to hear about it!

    Sorry for my bad english!

    PPT does way more than that. It supports using the spacebar, it gives you *actually* random scrambles, and it's possible to export old solve times (and when each solve was).

    Yeah, good point. I've been meaning to backport my Javascript fix for Walter. But PPT is still better at random scrambles than any other timer out there right now.

    How do you know that? Can you tell just by looking at the scrambles?

    We can tell by looking at the scrambler. ;-)

    I wrote a timer a long time ago that saves in tab delimited format by default. http://www.vanderblonk.com/tools/talking-timer/
