random code and what not

Pomodoro Timer application

After reading an article on infoQ, I started using the Pomodoro technique. It works pretty good, but I do still strugle with making my self take a break after the 25 minutes is up.

I recently spent a few days and created a simple timer application to monitor my pomodoros, it is pretty rough around the edges, but good enough for a first release.

I wanted to check out Appcelerator and their Titanium framework, this seemed like a simple enough app to get started with. Titanium allows you to build an app using html, css and javascript then the Titanium framework will ‘compile’ your code into a desktop application that targets all major operating systems; Windows, Mac and Linux.

In the end I did not really use any of the Titanium Api in my code, just jquery, css and html.

I just tried it on my ubuntu 9.04 64-bit machine. Seemed to work fine - NOTE there is no 'install' required. Download and extract tar file. Then you should be able to just double click the tick-tock-desktop.exe from the root of the extracted directory (tick-tock-desktop-0.3.0) - I think you are trying to run the installer.exe from the installer directory? That doesn't work for me either, not sure why Appcelerator includes that directory?
