Quicksilver: 'TIMER' plug-in.
Authored by: tbolt502 on Aug 30, '06 08:04:20PM

Quicksilver is a great app!

However, I find this solution in this hint rather unreliable. Even when the reminders come up, if I am workign and typing, the keystrokes quickly trigger the system to remove the 'Large Type' command.

When I first started using Quicksilver, there was a great "Timer" plug-in. At some point, this plug-in was no longer available. Anyone know anything about this? That worked much better for reminders.

On your first point, would it work to use "Speak Text (Say)" as the action instead of "Large Type"? Would you be less likely to miss an audio reminder than a visual one?

Wouldn't it be much easier to open a Terminal window and type in

sleep 600 && say "Remind me"

to have that spoken 10 minutes later? Well, it's not Quicksilver...
