= Tea-time =

Tea-time is an extention to emacs.
Kind of analog of gnome applet tea-time

It allows you to set up time intervals and after this
interval is elapsed, Emacs will notify you with sound and    notification.
It could be useful if you make a tea or if you would like to
be more productive by setting time limit for a task.

If available, notification would be done with great tool
mumbles ( )
If not, then simply use standard emacs message.

= Requirements: =

 tested on Emacs 23,
 should work on any version.

= Installation: =

1. Download from,
   or simply <code>git clone git://</code>

3. Add the code below in your .emacs
   <code>(require 'tea-time)</code>

4. Customize variable <code>tea-time-sound</code> via <code>M-x customize</code>
or simply  put <code>(setq tea-time-sound "path-to-sound-file")</code> in .emacs

= Usage: =
