How do I save an average? I do an average of 5, it tells me I had a pb. Then I say, ok, I'll another one. So I clear the previous times, and do another one. Even though the second one was slower, it tells me I have a new pb because I cleared the old one...

I get the same problem as Shelley. Running on linux (and I assume she is too). No error message, just a blank window.

For the main screen statistics I think that they should be organized like this:

number of times: # of non-DNF solves/total # of solves
best time: XX:XX.XX
worst time: XX:XX.XX

session avg: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)
session mean: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)

current mean3: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)
best mean3: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)

current avg5: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)
best avg5: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)

current mean10: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)
best mean10: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)

current avg12: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)
best avg12: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)

current avg100: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)
best avg100: XX:XX.XX (σ = X.XX)

NOTE: avg100 is not necessary

I think this would be the perfect option

You aren't supposed to clear any times when you want to start a new average. From what I can tell, your choices are: continue solving (without clearing times) or exit out and start the program again if you don't want your previous times displayed.

When I click on the .jar file it opens this blank window. When I try to delete it won't let me because it's java se binary thingie.

Another suggestion:

Don't let averages roll between sessions. I did an average of 12 earlier today, then I did a new session which was bad so I deleted it. Now I've done 88 solves and it's giving me an average of 100, which isn't really an average of 100 because the earlier solves shouldn't be included.

I've don't an Ao50 and so far I've hit the spacebar and the timer hasn't started more than five times. The statistics layout is a little confusing. Maybe have a button that will switch it from averages to means so it would be like this:

[Button for Mean]
Best Time:xx.xx
Worst Time:xx.xx

Current Ao5:xx.xx
Best Ao5:xx.xx

Current Ao12:xx.xx
Best Ao12:xx.xx

Current Session Average:xx.xx
Standard Deviation:x.xx



And then if you have Mean selected just have the button toggle to averages. An option to toggle on Ao50 and Ao100 would be pretty helpful as well. I like interface, it looks very clean except for the statistics section which is hard to find what you're looking for.



A question as well: How can I save this to my desktop so that it has a shortcut on my monitor?

Lolfaz. anyway, I can't it to work. How are you supposed to open it? I keep getting a blank window titled: "Puzzle Timer". How do I fix?

Edit: I fix it myself. The timer is very sexy.

I can't get it to open. I've downloaded it many times and it still just opens to a blank window or it tells me there is an error. I have a mac, has anyone else had this problem?
