Looks more like mission control in Houston than a brewing program (but of course I'm going to try it out anyway).

That reminds me, I used this last weekend and it was pretty cool. You can save your configs for each of your recipes so you don't have to go thru all the BS setup each time you brew it. One problem, it didn't alarm for my hop editions. Didn't want to stop the timer to figure out why not but perhaps it was my PC freakin.

Since I'm a computer geek as for it not working with ME; uhm the workaround is an upgrade (to XP ). Seems strange that it wouldn't work though. Probably try and fumble around on MS Web site to see if you can get the latest VB Runtime downloaded somehow.

Holy visual clutter, batman! The interface makes my eyes bleed!

Users -- does this thing look any better in real life? Can it be configured in some way so as to reduce the clutter?

I would but I am running an old e-machine 800mhz celeron 128 ram pc in the brewshed. Can't afford another pc right now and don't want to lug the laptop up here when I brew.
I just suffer for a while longer...

In the interest of keeping this thread on topic, discussion about a simpler Java timer app has been split to this thread.

I am almost certain that this thing would cause me more screwups than it saves. I appreciate the geekery, but I think I'll stick with the dependable old $5 Timex with timer and alarms.

This one actually looks better because it looks like you can build out all your steps in a list and set timers to them. Although five timers may not be enough.
