as several people here probably know, a few months ago I escaped the clutches of Durham university accommodation and have now got my own flat. Apart from lots of extra space, my own decoration, and no longer having the firewalls of doom to cope with, a supreme bennifit is having an oven, ----- and indeed my own kitchen to put it in.
While being able to cook more things, and more of more things, there is one miner issue with said oven, ----- no timer!
while in colidge I made extensive use of a microwave,and my own George forman gril (which officially I shouldn't have had but hay!), both of which have highly accessible and useable timers.
Of course, I can always use my cube clock, but sinse I'm rather bad about checking the time and inclined to get carried away with what I''m doing (witness this post), a timer would be useful, and sinse my Pc is comparatively close to my kitchen, there's no reason why a program wouldn't serve my purpose.
Obviously, it'd have to be an accessible program, and to be relatively quick to set times on. it would also help if it would run quietly in the background, so I can go off and play a game or stick on a Dvd and stil be notified when time runs out.
Any advice would be great!
Thanks in advance.
