i've done a simple tool (named easytimer) in C++/Qt. It is a graphical timer. You can setup the time and count from 00:00:00 to that time or count down to zero. It is possible to launch a command at the end and play a sound for notify the user.
The interaction with the tool is based on the mouse wheel/buttons.
It is very simple and write in C++. The GUI is realized with Qt (>3.3.3).
I think that it can be usefull for some users and in Portage there are no timer timer at all (if you do "emerge -s timer" you'll get wmtimer... but it is small and for windowmaker).
Would you like to see a screenshot? Let look at
(it is a section of my home page).
PS sorry for my english, but i'm italian!!! ;)
