The Coffee Timer is a very simple countdown timer I built after frying my third coffee pot. Like many other programmers, I often drink coffe while working - I mean Italian expresso coffee, the kind you make with a “moka” coffee pot. However, I don’t usually wait for the coffee to be ready before going back to work, which often results in the coffee pot being forgotten on the fire for hours. This is a programmer’s solution to the problem.
Coffee Timer is a simple countdown timer with a loud alarm and a couple of other useful options.
For those of you who need more flexibility in their timer, the Coffee Timer allows a KeyQuencer macro to be run when the timer times out. This lets you instruct your Mac to do pretty much anything at alarm time. The Coffee Timer works with both KeyQuencer 1.2.x and the forthcoming KeyQuencer 2.0 (which you don’t want to miss!).
Quite obviously, the Coffee Timer is not limited to your daily coffee break. You can use it to remind yourself of anything that must happen in the near future… filling the bath tub? taking a short sleep? delaying a fax? Just launch the Coffee Timer and let it help your memory and your watch.
You may even put an alias to Coffee Timer in your Startup Items folder to prevent yourself from sitting in front of your Mac for long periods of time. All you have to do is take a break every time the timer starts bugging you…
Minor changes in the code.
