Cuppa for OS X

Postby scruffmcgruff » Feb 23rd, '07, 01:30

Hey all, I just stumbled across this little app for Mac OS X. I don't make tea near my computer, but I still thought it was pretty cool, so some of you might be interested. Sorry if this has been posted in another thread, but here's the link:

:oops: Yeah...I'm that kinda nerd. I have one of these. I use it all the time. I need to develop some independent existence outside my MacBook.

This app looks interesting, and I really like that it's written for intel macs. But it just has a menu for things like "English Breakfast, etc" and doesn't allow you to really control the time. This particular app, Tea Timer, is just a straight clock. You want to steep for 3 minutes and 33 seconds? just type it in. This is an older program and can be a little slow to engage on the intel macs. Just make sure to bring up the app before you start to brew.

The best part? A corny image of Big Ben and the sound of his bells pops up when the clock runs down.

Yeah. That kind of nerd.

Actually, it does allow you to set your own time-- there's a "quick timer" option.

That big ben thing is pretty cool though... :)
