These timers were created for doing sprints on a stationary bike.
Please adjust Timers.html, "The Timers", Display Options -> Update Interval to 1 if you have not already done so.
Seconds can be any whole number; however, they have not been tested with values greater than 400 (6 plus minute intervals). The alarm names were intended to be short descriptive names, for example less then 8 characters. If you have active interval timers, do not hit setAlarm to try and start another interval timer, it does not work at this time. Only one instance of an interval timer per page. These timers were created for doing sprints on a stationary bike.
The timers are accurate to +- 3 seconds as long as you are not running processor intensive tasks that take away from Firefox and this page. If you want these timers to be accurate, don't run anything else that uses a lot of your computers' CPU or other resources at the same time. Examples, programming compiles, multiple downloads, large spreadsheet recalculations, watching HD videos etc. It can take up to 5 seconds between the actual end time of the alarm (when the display goes to zero) and the playing of the alarm. In other words, the actual time between the timers visual cues will be accurate to +- 3 seconds and the actual time between the audio cues will be as accurate; however, the time between the visual cue for one timer and the audio cue for another event can be off by up to 5 seconds +- 3 seconds. Your mileage will vary. If you want more accuray for timing event a) this application would need to re written as a high priority service or daemon and b) it would have to be run on a Real Time Operating System (RTOS).
The display of the number of repetitions is expanded to be the number of events left. The wait time is included as a repetition.
If you close the screen, the timers are no longer active.
