PC Software for controlling computer breaks
« on: February 04, 2011, 08:19:14 pm »
Finally after more than a year trying searches, waiting, being alert while surfing I found a little software pearl for helping me control my rests on computer.

The name is Workrave:
Open source, free (of charge) and for Linux and Windows.

It is configurable and gives some statistics of your computer usage. Plus there is a portable version on, that was how I discovered it.
And the program description helped to unveil the right keywords on Google to search this kind of software. I had rough ideas for keywords but they never showed up what I was looking for.

It has all the options I really wanted and others I found really useful as well.

So now there isn't excuse for not taking a walk and rest your eyes. :P

Lol nice, I remember in newspaper they showed some programs that blocked your computer during an hour or two when you wanted to do homework or something. Sometimes we search for something on Google but don't know the keywords, so we never find what we want. X.x
