An AppleScript for timers using Quicksilver and Growl
Authored by: Peganthyrus on Sep 08, '09 07:40:34AM

You can do this entirely with Quicksilver's built-in functionality, though not as a Growl alert.

1. Invoke quicksilver, enter the string you want as an alert
2. Tab over to the second pane, select 'large text' if it's not already selected; hit <b>ctrl-return</b>
3. You will now have "Show 'alert string' as large type" as your noun, and "run" as your verb. Choose "run after delay..." as your verb (typing 'del' usually gets it for me).
4. Tab over to the third pane, type your delay: "5sec" "5min" "2h5sec" or whatever.
