TakeABreak Gadget

This gadget is based on the TakeABreak application.

This gadget has been designed to help you manage your computer hours and breaks
to protect your eyes.

It features a small eye that blinks letting you know you should blink.
By default this gadget uses the 20 20 20 rule, for every 20 minutes you should
take a break of 20 seconds and look at an object 20 feet away (6 meters).
When break time arrives a sound is being played and the eye shuts.

Thanks for you correction. My English is not perfect (-:

Whoops. I meant "Take" not "Tke." Pretty dumb when I'm trying to correct English.

Your English is of course excellent. When TakeABreak says "Take a break until this message will disappear" it is totally understandable. But it would be idiomatic to say "Tke a break until this message disappears." Thank you for a nice program that does just what's needed in a simple, straightforward way

You can change the sound at any time by going to the gadget settings. Contact me at and I will explain.

great app! Could you please add an option to select your own sound? That would really improve it's usability I think. (your included sound is too loud/long for my taste, actually it gets really annoying after a while) thanks a bunch! bye

I updated the gadget, it's now compatible with IE9, download it again and try it out
By fyn, at Oct 20, 2010
yes (looks sheepish as I didn't think of that - d'oh!)

This is a brilliant gadget - genius idea! I do have one question tho..... when my gaget blinks the background around it goes white, which is really obvious against my black background. Any ideas?
