Cool Freeware

Yes, I’m up far too late. I’m too hyper to sleep at the moment—and I’m pol­ish­ing my home­work for tomor­row. Yes, it’s done, I’m just a per­fec­tion­ist. And the dan­ger of choos­ing inter­est­ing top­ics for one’s projects is that you don’t want to let go of them!

Any­way, I’ve been using this mar­velous piece of free­ware called Break Reminder. It reminds me to take “micropaus­es” every 10 min­utes to stretch and enforces a 15-minute break every 30 min­utes. Between the two, I don’t find myself get­ting so stiff that I can’t move, and my pain lev­els are bet­ter. It’s com­plete­ly configurable—I have it set to fair­ly strict set­tings, but you can tweak it to your heart’s delight.

You can get it from the nice folks at Che­quers Soft­ware. It’s free for per­son­al or non-prof­it use, but they’ll hap­pi­ly sell licens­es to busi­ness­es. Win­dows only, I’m afraid.
