    The countdown can be changed anytime using the widgets own buttons instead of having to recreate the countdown.

    5 Synchronise
    This 1x1 widget displays a Hrs:Mins:Secs clock where you set the start time which effectively synchronises this clock with another.
    Example, if your works clock machine is 5 minutes fast then simply enter 5 in the minutes field.

    If the clock you are synchronising to is slow then enter a negative number.

    Clock digits/background and clocks label color and transparency are separately configurable.
