Inspired by another timer idea, I would like a two timing timer.
I am baking a cake, yum, it takes 30 minutes to bake at 320
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.)
here is a triple time timer [evilpenguin, Oct 06 2015]
||Ah, but if a cake bakes without timer, and no one hears you eat it, does it still gain you a pound?
||I'm sure there's an app for that...
||Set the timer for the first one. Reset for the remaining
||Or have an oven and a microwave each with their own
||Too easy, [MechE]. I need complex and interesting.
||Start up 2 instances of the timer app on your
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
||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.
