i have a program that runs every night at 12:30 (i guess that's morning) to
give a 5 minute countdown and then shut my computer down. i am in law
school, and i have class in the morning, so i need something to warn me that
time for python-ing is over.
problem is, if i am in another room my computer shuts down and i lose
unsaved work. beeps help.
