Coffee Comment:

  • 2010-03-22: I designed the Cattail.Nu Counter app specifically to be simple and functional. I wanted to track when our TV image was freezing to see if it was random or due to an electrical charge buildup (regular). It didn't happen often enough to justify paying attention to the clock each time it would freeze. I just wanted something I could mindlessly tap, not interrupting my focus on the show, that I could analyze later. Of course, the problem miraculously disappeared on its own long before this app ever got finished, but I thought up a bunch of other uses - see the Customer Comments.
