Loffol countdown timer
Loffol is a configurable liftoff (countdown) timer with selectable alarm sound.
To set the countdown interval, select the hours, minutes, and seconds from the drop-down controls and then click Set. This will lock out the drop-down controls. Loffol will start counting down from the time you set. The alarm will ring when the counter reaches 00:00:00.
To stop the alarm when it's ringing or to turn it off before it rings, click Reset.
Note that a short burst of the selected alarm will sound at a warning time before the counter reaches 00:00:00. You can set or disable this using the w= setting; see below.
Loffol displays a label above the time, which may be useful if running several instances of Loffol in different windows to remind you which window is timing what event. Loffol does not use or save the label; it simply displays it. To change the label, click on it, enter the desired text, then [Enter]. Or you can set the label on startup using the "l=" setting; see below.
Label: /cgi-bin/loffol.cgi?l=xxx where xxx is the label to show. To change the label once it is displayed, click on it, enter the desired text, then [Enter]. Encode spaces with %20.
Warning alarm time in seconds: /cgi-bin/loffol.cgi?w=n where n is -1 to disable the warning alarm, or anything greater than 15 to set the warning alarm time to that number of seconds. This setting affects all instances.
