The folks on the channel pointed me to a great Firefox plugin this morning. It’s the “Beer O’Clock” plugin, and it tells you how much longer you have to go before you can enjoy quaffing some cold suds. One of the nice bits about the plugin is that you can define your own time units, so it can remind you that you only have to throttle 4 more sales reps before beer, or something similar, instead of something depressing like “5 more hours of conference calls”.
As a productivity tool it’s probably not going to help you out. It is fun, however, and puts a nice little pic of a pint on your status bar.
