Hello beautiful,

I recently started using your timeout-plugin and I love it. I think forcing me
away from the screen every 30 minutes is a very good idea. :) My experience
with it, however, shows 2 scenarios where it still doesn't work for me.


A) Ok, so the time has run out and timeout forces me to take a break. I
gratefully take a break. In the meantime the telephone rings. When I get back
to work, the next cycle has already begun, so I have only 21 minutes left. (Not
what I want. I want 30.)

B) Like many people, I use my computer not only for screen work. It often times
works for me in the background, e.g. playing music. When I really set myself to
work on the screen, I start with a counter of, say, 14 minutes, before I'm sent
to rest. (Not what I want. I want 30.)

Feature requests:

1) "Keep going button":
When the break is over, the window doen't close automatically. Instead, the
"Postpone break" button is exchanged for a "Keep going" button. The next cycle
doesn't start before I report for work by clicking the button.

2) "Double click icon to reset cycle":
I can reset the cycle to 30 minutes by simply double-clicking on the icon in
the panel. This way, I can give myself 30 full minutes for the next session
when I return to the screen.

I would find these 2 features very valuable. If you agree with me, I would be
very grateful if you could be so kind to add these features.

Thank you so much.
