Lately I've been trying out this productivity technique called The Pomodoro Technique.  The basic idea is that you write down a task to work toward, work hard for 25 minutes, and then rest for 5 minutes--repeating until the task is complete.

Since most of my time is spent in front of a computer, I looked for a timer that would show me the 25-minute clock counting down.  I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I decided to write my own as my first open source project.

The name of the program is Pomo.  You can get it here.  Just download and run it.
