Keep your eye on the clock so you don't lose unsaved data.
That would work. However, the user would have to run that command every hour.. might be a nice thing to add to a root cronjob.

Re: Need a program that will FORCE me to go AFK every hour

You could combine a cronjob and a popup notification to serve as a reminder. If you're willing to try this and you're using a GTK-based desktop environment (Mate or Cinnamon), this would be an easy fix. However, any reminder is only as good as your ability to comply with it instead of ignoring it. 1...

Re: Is Linux Mint as secure as it could be?

This is a legitimate question, please don't take offense. Just trying to understand why some say Linux Mint is not as secure as it could be.

Why do seemingly so few developers put out .deb packages? Every cool piece of software I think I would like is either tarballs or source. Inevitably I'll miss dependencies, then I have to hunt for them, then I'll install them, then I'll compile and low and behold, there were errors compiling. I'll ...

Re: I need help with a theme

Oh, well it's no wonder I couldn't find it.. I didn't even associate those dotted lines with scroll indicators. That worked perfectly, thank you very much! And, thank you for the link.. that information is useful in learning more about theming.
