did I say something wrong? there are several counter objects. but none 
built into Pd.
and yes, I was refering to the max counter-objectclass, because that is 
how the thread started.
the max version can count up and down (and also up&down), has optional 
startig and end position and can be reset, it also has an outlet that 
tells you when you reached the maximum number and also when it reached 
the minimum/starts recounting. the closest pd version is from cyclone.
and counter *is* useful.
