Really like appearance of the Alpha Clock Five. This is I suspect more of a "feature request" than a question. :-)
Have you any plans to update the firmware, to add new features?
(Have any users sent you interesting modifications?)
Professional gym clocks start at $400, with options for "bells" or buzzers costing hundreds more.
To that end I searched the net to see if anyone has added to the Alpha Clock.. timer variants like countdown/countup and "rounds" of time.
A clock kit with the software basics - timers/rounds etc. - and the ability to be hacked/extended would be a nice evolution. :-)
I guess this is half feature suggestion, and half inquiring if there will be continued development of the Alpha Clock Five firmware. :-)
(Hopefully I don't sound lazy. What I'm looking for is more "feature foundation" in a clock kit, and this is the closest product/kit I have found)
EDIT: I think my question could be answered in a demonstration of a countdown or countup, as a forum reply or maybe blog post.
(I'm a programmer of sorts.. but from the PHP/Python/Perl world where the interpreter does so much for you. Shifting bits is quite alien to me).
