I looked all over the Web for a simple five-minute timer that I could use to count down to the start of our church's Sunday service. After a great deal of fruitless Googling, I threw in the towel and decided to make my own.
This cost me a good amount of time and quite a bit of frustration to finish, so I would love if others could get some use out of it too! Follow this link, then right-click on the "Download" button and choose "Save As" to save the animation to your PC. You can then insert it into a Powerpoint or other slideshow as needed.
Here are the specs:
- Transparent background
- Black text
- Arial font
- 800 x 400 pixels
- Counts down from five minutes (5 minutes)
- Great to track time before the start of a service, class, or meeting; also useful for mid-meeting breaks
- A little bit wobbly because I messed the alignment up on a few images (but not too noticeably, I hope)
I guess this is the place where I should insert the obligatory appeal for remuneration. So here goes: if you would like to show your appreciation for this countdown, please do something to help someone who is truly in need. God loves a cheerful giver, and I've already got everything I want. :-)
