Found Currency Experiment

Last year around this time, I constantly passed loose change in the Quick Chek parking lot in Highland Park, NJ.

JacobB asked for someone to code the following our Coding Snacks Request forum:

I know that there are allot of timers and clocks out there, but this one is specific for the "Work The Dash and Take a Break" formula discussed at:


The idea is to have a timer that will run for 10 minutes doing a task, then take a 2 minute break, and repeat 5 times, and you have 1 hour of work.

This would be a great help for procrastinating people like me.

A few days later App103 from our forum returned with a wonderful implementation, called "Instant Boss".
