And here I was thinking of making it bigger, make it flashing red, and add a ticking sound... [lol]

If you did that, then you might as well add "continuous error checking" [biggrin]

TICKING?!?!?!?!?!?!? ARE YOU INSANE???

I like it very much the way it is... small, black, and nondescript. I have SERIOUS issues with time limits [unsure]

Beaker,
Regarding your 4:24 -- it could be worse. Today I was 15th with a 4:35. shunyshe was 11th with a 3:55.

To Patrick - A change like that may cause me to throw my tablet. I have no idea if others have anxiety issues, but I DO. [cursing]

To Marble - How about the Jeopardy Theme? [crying] Or does tell my age?

To both sjse4, and beaker : the times are getting faster. If I can get an extra point one every two months or so, I feel OK. I hate the fact that a 4:30 time will no longer yield results. I do not know if it is just younger people or if it is just a different strategy, or way of thinking. I grew up double checking my math. [namaste]

Anxiety begins to increase greatly as I start any timed puzzle and yes I believe the younger users are making it very difficult for us "older" users to gain a point or 2 on any of the timed puzzles [cursing]

I certainly agree with the anxiety part (at least when it comes to TICKING CLOCKS [scared] - those things always put me on edge). But I love watching Jeopardy, and I'm still in my young teens - it has nothing to do with age, only the quality of the show. (though I still think it wouldn't necessarily be a good idea to add it to the timer - I'd probably throw my computer anyway :-) )
