It changes to 'count from end'.
The usage case it evolved from is:
You experiment has been running and logging data for 10's of hours...
You are looking at the last 30minutes.
You pause/go back one screen/change frame ranges to look at some recent
historical stuff. When you are done, you want to go back to live mode.
You have two choices:
i) Read to end (which will bring your machine down if you leave it that way
for the next day, since the data keeps coming at 100Hz x 64 channels)
ii) Count from end (which assumes that the length of your current window is
the length of the window your want, but you want to be looking at the most
(ii) makes sense most often (at least for us), so that is what we do.
