Earth Hour... Stop yourself from using your computer during Earth Hour with this free application. Simply double-click on it and leave it to alert you at 20:20, 20:25 and block your screen at 20:30. The app will automatically quit at 9:30. Apologies if it doesn't work... I threw it together this afternoon and haven't had much testing time.


Mac OS X 10.5 or later

There are certainly a few problems, mainly philosophical, with this version of Earth Hour.app. What I hope to fix by next year:
• Add automatic sleep to make sure you don't accident.
• Better alerts.
• Change the "give up" text to something more suitable.
• Fix the whole code design.
• More things as I think of them.

The point of Earth hour is to SHUT DOWN your electronics -- not simply stop using them. You want to cut down on wasting electricity.

This app doesn't do much. It stops you from using your computer, which could be considered a first step to meditate on nature and all sorts of wonderful stuff, but your computer is still on gobbling energy.

The idea is to get you started promptly and stop you being tempted to use your computer during the hour. I was planning on adding an automatic sleep timer, but unfortunately I didn't have time. Maybe next year.

If your version is coming on early, download again. Sorry about that. Please don't kill me. :(

No problem with that - your version just came late on VT for Denmark :D

Yeah, sorry. It just occurred to me a few hours ago. Anyway, I only have five minutes left here.
