I was about to pay someone to make an Addon like this one; luckily,I found that you already made it for free - thanks a lot!

after using this addon a lot in the past days, I'm never ever coming back to not using it. Knowing you get a punishment for being slow (the card reseting) makes you focus with 3x more intensity. This add-on is a MUST have.

Also, you can increase or reduce the time-limit, by editing the add-on file (because it is so simple, even those who don't know programming can edit it easily).

It's a pity.
