Any recommendations for a free Windows XP program to remind me every hour or so to get up and stretch? Thanks.
Someone posted some code here a few months ago for a quickie DOS program that would cause your computer to beep every so often; by changing the time parameter you could cause it to beep every hour. I can’t find it though!
If you have no answer by the time I get home, I’ll dig the code up and post it for you.
I’ve since found this:
looks pretty good, the free version is likely enough for me.
I’ve always been a fan of Chameleon Clock. It’s super cute and I loved the free version so much I bought the licensed version.
If you use Outlook for your email you can always set up the reminder up as a recurring task.
Sounds like you’re covered, but for what it’s worth, here’s the code I was referring to earlier:
START/min sndrec32 /play /close %windir%\media\ding.wav
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1
Cut and paste that into a blank notepad document, then save it to your desktop with a name that has the extension “.bat”. When you double-click on it, it will cause your computer to beep once about every 5 seconds… change the 5 in the line “ping -n 5 127.0.0.1” to 360, and it should beep about once an hour. I’d credit the person that wrote it, but I can’t remember who it was!
360 secounds would be 6 minutes. once an hour is 3600.
