New odesk application (recent update) hours format counter.

Personally I don't think it is a good idea to change a counter of hours format (on mouse over an oDesk icon in a tray).
The new format ( - team name - xx:xx hours of xx:xx hours limit remaining).
I definitely prefer an old format like (5:44 of xx:xx limit).

Please either revert those changes or give us a way to change a format in an application settings!

Thanks!

New format does not show 10 minute increments

I agree. This change is distracting.

Well said. Now it is

Now it is misleading and confusing.

Thank you, I just did it and now it is better...

I don't like the new counter.

I don't like the new counter. I hope that ODesk will run a small survey about the changes they want to make to the system before incorporating it.

Please revert to old format

I quite agree. I prefer the old format (no. of hours worked against the remaining hours). I reverted back to the old version 2x because of this. I thought this was already updated. I checked the preferences but it is not yet modifiable. Hope Odesk address to this
