Two Timer

A two timing timer, (apparently)
  [vote for,

Inspired by another timer idea, I would like a two timing timer.

The scenerio:

I am baking a cake, yum, it takes 30 minutes to bake at 320 degrees.

I want to meditate for 20 minutes while the cake is baking. Then when I am done, there will be a lovely cake to eat.

Hence I need a Two Timer. A regular, functional kitchen timer that can be set for two times. It buzzes for the first time just like always, but behold, a beautiful Tibetan Gong rings for the second time. That way you know the difference between the two. (And no, I don't want two timers either.)

       Ah, but if a cake bakes without timer, and no one hears you eat it, does it still gain you a pound?   


       Mmmm, Cake! [+]

       I'm sure there's an app for that...

       Set the timer for the first one. Reset for the remaining time.   

       Or have an oven and a microwave each with their own timers.

       Too easy, [MechE]. I need complex and interesting.

       Start up 2 instances of the timer app on your smartphone; one for 20 minutes and another for 30 minutes each with distinct alarm sounds.   

       I'd suggest a gong after 20 minutes meditation to avoid a harsh end to the mood, and a buzzer after 30 minutes cooking time.   

       You might need to install 2 different timer apps, since an app is likely to allow itself to run only 1 instance and operate only 1 timer.
