duel timer is a dual kitchen timer for having an argument with someone.  let's both people see who's talking the most, with overtime reminders about arguing all day with someone who always talks and never listens ;-)

how to use
click either timer or hit spacebar to pass the talking stick
click anywhere else or hit tab for nobody (same as pause)
turn counters - time remaining in this turn
total counters - accumulated total time
duel counters - time remaining in duel
!beep popup - select overtime alarm  (for notification, duel timer must be the front hypercard stack, or consensus timers must be running)
turn popup - select max time for turns
total popup - command menu
  switch - to other person, same as spacebar or clicking timer
  pause - same as tab or clicking not on a timer
  undo - oops (undo's last diff or reset)
  diff - zero smaller timer, leave diff on other
  reset - zero both timers
duel popup - select total time for duel (each person gets half)
?who help menu
  presets - combinations of duel, turn, & beep options
  names - set timer names

duel timer is dedicated to ms renee partridge & mrs emma p felione, and co-counselors everywhere!
more thanks to the people of apple computer for macintosh & hypercard, and to the smalltalk people before them.  i'm still using hypercard.
