Introduction
    The Presentation Timer program is intended to be used at conferences and meetings to help keep the presentations on schedule.  It can be run on a laptop and displayed either on the laptop screen or on a projector so that the presenter, chair, and audience have a clear view of when the time remaining.  Version 2.0 can also be run directly on the presentation computer, with the program set to a small size and  using options such as Keep In Front, Transparency, and Minimize (with automatic restore when an alarm goes off).

Overview
    The Presentation Timer program is a configurable clock/timer that can be used for a number of purposes.  It is primarily intended as a conference timer, to help keep participants on schedule.  It can also be used as a computer desktop clock, alarm clock, or event timer.  Most of its operation is controlled through various menu selections, with the addition of a few on-screen controls.
