Manual

Syntax: hours:minutes.seconds  [message]      (message optional) 

Enter this text (hereafter instructions) into the text box to the left of the "start" button. Or enter the instruction as a command line argument.  


Note that there must be a space between the message and the amount of time you wish to count down. The hours:minutes.seconds syntax may be a non-standard, but has advantages as a shorthand, as need only type the digits that you need to set - 0 placeholder values are rarely need. Lean Count down can usually guess what you mean, as the examples below show:

Example instructions:

30 Stretch  Wait 30 minutes and then print Stretch

3.30 Tea 

Wait 3 minutes, 30 seconds, then print Tea

1: Catch Bus Wait 1 hour, then print Catch Bus
1:30 !shutdown /h  Wait 1 hour, 30 minutes and then shutdown (Any command can follow the !)

Tips:

Lean Count Down accepts input from the command line, which makes it even quicker to load. First make sure LCD.exe is in your path (for instance, place it in c:\windows\system32). Then push WinKey + R on your keyboard and type LCD instructions.

Change log

v1.2 optional message can be at the start or the end of instructions.
