Notify yourself periodically using Growl
Authored by: S Barman on Sep 28, '07 09:48:52PM
Actually, the 's' and 'm' does not work on the "standard" version of sleep. You will have to convert it to the number of seconds. How about a much shorter version:
while sleep 600; do growlnotify -s -m 'Take a Drink!'; done
I am a fan of short and simple!!
