Windows 7: stand-alone time calculator with column paste?

stand-alone time calculator with column paste?

Anyone know of a free stand-alone time calculator with column paste?

I'm looking for a stand-alone program(not an excel addon) where you can column copy a list of times and paste them, and it will total them.

Main use is for sites like AllMusic where the times of tracks are listed with the titles. I could paste the page into an editor with column selection/copy. Then paste into the calculator.

If it had other functions like the difference between 2 times that's a bonus. But the column paste with total time generation is the main feature I'm looking for. I don't want to type in a dozen track times to get the total album play time.

Hmmmmm, the old AddTime seems to be the only free one. You have to hunt it down, then get the missing dll from an XP system. I searched so many sites I don't even remember where I got it from. The author's download site is dead.

If you can format a column of numbers and copy it to the clipboard with a column cut & paste capable editor, then you can paste and get the total time. Only bad thing is it doesn't support colon ':' as separator which is used on AllMusic. You have to substitute '.' for ':' in the selected text, then copy to clipboard.

Or if you're good on the number pad, just enter the times in and hit the + key for the track times.

This solution is even better. Just copy paste from AllMusic into this app:
