egg timer for lightning talks

Yesterday, for the Lightning Talks portion of the Mozilla Labs Meetup, I couldn’t find a good online egg timer, so I created a simple one and put it up at  Since then I’ve found, so I guess it wasn’t necessary, but it’s there now anyway.

  1. I had to look at the source to figure out how to start it – it’s not obvious at all.

  2. I guess you did a search and replace of “let” to “var”, since one of the comments says “we var the user set…”

  3. anonymous: yeah, it could use some visible UI.

    mmc: d’oh! You are absolutely right, I mass replaced “let” with “var” to make it work outside of Firefox.

  4. Hey Myk,

    Was just going through my planet backlog – this is great. Simple, elegant. Don’t change a thing.

    Except that 9s don’t work. 🙂 I think you’ve got a typo here:

    case 54: // DOM_VK_6
    case 55: // DOM_VK_7
    case 56: // DOM_VK_8
    case 58: // DOM_VK_9

    I bet the last line should be case 57:

    Thanks for this, though.
