You've popped a meal into the oven and you're merrily scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed in the other room. Wait, is something burning?

Oh no! You forgot to set an alarm and dinner is ruined!

If you never seem to hear alarms while on the computer, I have a great solution to help you. AbAlarm is a digital alarm that works with your computer to remind you of important events, or just to pull dinner out of the oven.

You can set one timer with a reminder note, or a countdown with as many minutes as you need. If you need daily or weekly reminders, AbAlarm can schedule them for you, and it even has a helper.

The AbAlarm helper is a cute little dog, so you can customize your alert tone to fit your alarm. There are plenty of sounds to choose from, so have fun personalizing this unique alarm.

But what if a timer alert isn't enough? AbAlarm can start programs for you to help you switch gears. If it's time to switch from Facebook to textbook, AbAlarm can shut down the computer, too.
