Xwrits manufacturer description

Xwrits 2.26 reminds you to take wrist breaks for prevention or management of repetitive stress injuries. When you should take a break, it pops up an X window, the warning window. You click on the warning window, then take a break. The window changes appearance while you take the break. It changes again when your break is over. Then you just resume typing. Xwrits Calendars & time organizers hides itself until you should take another break.

The typetime option changes the amount of time between breaks, and the breaktime option changes the length of a break. The defaults are 55 minutes and 5 minutes, respectively.

Xwrits’s graphics are brightly colored pictures of a wrist and hand. The hand clenches and spreads “as if in pain” on the warning window, slumps relaxed during the break, and points forward valiantly when the break is over. It is trapped behind bars while the keyboard is locked. Other gestures are included (see the +finger option). You can also use your own pictures: see the warning-picture, rest-picture, and ready-picture options.

Normally, Xwrits download works through annoyance -- it flashes until you stop typing. However, an option makes it actively prevent you from typing by locking the screen. See +lock below.

Xwrits notices when you leave your workstation idle, and treats a long idle period as if you took a break. You can turn this off with the -idle option. With the +mouse option, it will also monitor your mouse movements -- you won’t be able to move the mouse during a break without aborting the break.

Each wrist break normally lasts the same amount of time. This is what doctors suggest, but, if you’d like, the +quota option will reward you for taking small breaks by reducing the length of the next official break.

Some doctors recommend taking a short “microbreak” every five minutes, as well as a longer break every hour. To use xwrits this way, just run two xwrits processes, one for the microbreaks and one for the longer breaks.
