IDEA: (10+2)*5 Timer

<< < (5/9) > >>

So, i think either the reset button should not reset to "factory" or there should be another button in the gui to use this function.

I'll fix that some time this week.

Jammo the OrganizedFellow:
I hope I am commenting in the right place.

I downloaded the app and am currently using it.
I just have one comment/request, and depending how many other members like the idea, perhaps it can be integrated into the next version? :)

When TAKE A BREAK pops up, I think it would be benificial if a small text box (optional) that allows you to enter a brief paragraph stating the progress that was accomplished during the past 'X' minutes of work.

Best if I show you.

Instead of this (the default image):
IDEA: (10+2)*5 Timer

Maybe something like this would popup:
IDEA: (10+2)*5 Timer

And when the button is clicked:
IDEA: (10+2)*5 Timer

(i love Fireworks, lol)

So, as in the last image sample, a SAVE button should be there to save the entered text to a .txt file? or something that would be read by the app, along with time/date stamps?

I do plan on adding logging in a future version. As soon as I figure out exactly what I want to log, the best way to do that, and the best way to present the data back to the user in a way that will make sense and be the most useful.

I use instantboss in combination with Titlelog, which keeps a log of the active windows - ie what youre doing.

If you have been away from your computer for more than a set period of time, when you return, Titlelog will ask what you've been doing. I'm starting to also summarise what i was doing prior to the break which seems more important.

I do it to help me be realistic about what I'm doing &/or not doing :) & it can help for the next "sitting"

now this is the *ideal* program to be merged with Temptation Blocker, which has been sadly abandoned by its author. the program blocks your distractions ((firefox/IE mostly for me) on the computer, though it lacks a key feature: once you take a break, nothing stops you frmo making it two hours long! Read more about the program, with soutce available:

Could someone bring both goodies together?
