Here is a little application that I originally wrote in VB.NET in VS2005. I have ported it to B4PPC using my FormExDestop and new (see the "Basic4ppc Libraries" thread) ControlsExDesktop libraries. I use it when I am engrossed with my computer to tell me when to unload the washing machine or tumble dryer or when to put the oven on for tea. No help file because it should be obvious how to use it. EDIT :- Updated to compile under version 6 together with the necessary updated libraries.
