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.

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. 6. ### y3k9Member 398 0 Aug 29, 2010 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. 7. ### aronpmMember Sep 9, 2009 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. 8. ### freshcuberMember Aug 13, 2010 Buffalo, New York WCA: 2011MURR02 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? 9. ### mr. giggumsMember go to where the file is saved, right click, hit send to desktop. 10. ### freshcuberMember Aug 13, 2010 Buffalo, New York WCA: 2011MURR02 Awesome, thanks! 11. ### Louis McDonaldMember 23 0 Oct 14, 2010 WCA: 2010MCDO01 I think you just need the ability to save separate sessions as you do on cct?? Great timer otherwise 12. ### FazFormer Clock NR Holder 4,241 68 Apr 24, 2008 Melbourne, Australia WCA: 2009ZEMD01 YouTube: fazrulz1 eww 6 gen 2x2 scrambles. 13. ### y3k9Member 398 0 Aug 29, 2010 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?

Might I suggest a session average instead of session mean. It's bad when you get one DNF and the mean becomes DNF.
