FadeTop visually reminds you to take a break

Weekends are not a very funny time for me because I have to work hard for my blog since in Week days I face a heavy load in my phD projects. What taunts me more is that I forgot about the time in most cases and hence even fail to take a break to grab a coffee!! But my next weekends will not be like before because I have just discovered a sweet program that will take care of me by visually reminding me about the current time by fading the computer screen with a Bluish Glow!! I want to that the developer Muti very much for informing me about his software FadeTop.

Take a Look at FadeTop in action. Wait till 10 seconds when you will be able to view that blueish glow.
