I know there are plenty of different timers out there, but since I had some special demands, I decided to make my own. I wanted the timer to re-appear on my screen when the time has run out, to grab my attention when I am doing other stuff. In addition, I wanted it to make a sound when finished, so in case I’m in another room, I can just turn on the speakers.
When minimized, just hover your mouse over the icon in the taskbar to see the remaining time.
