I’ve had a dose of OOS. Can you think of a way I can get my computer to tell me to stop every hour? I tend to run on, rather.
A quick Google suggested several bits of software but we both downloaded TimeOut which is free (donation welcomed). While the breaks are very annoying and interrupt the work totally, and they roll around incredibly quickly, I guess that’s the point. It’s amazing how quickly time goes by when you’re working and before you know it you’ve been at the computer for two or three hours without moving.

Time Out is absolutely brilliant. Can’t thank you enough. It should come installed on every computer. So there you are!
