DON'T Let It Burn! (1-click Timer) script is just a very basic, 1-click alarm clock. You set the number of minutes and at that time a sound (which you need to set) will be played. No application is started, the sound is played through the aplay command, so it's independent from the player you have installed.

Why?

I know there are tons of much better alarm clocks out there. In fact, this is not supposed to be an alarm clock. It's just a sort of kitchen timer, for computer addicted.

My problem was that i was burning all my food (kinda following, too literally, what Usher says in his song "Let it burn!").

After throwing something in the oven or putting on the cookers i use to go back working on the PC and every time i forget about the food. I can't be bother to set a "full alarm clock", need something REALLY fast that reminds me about the food just some minutes later (and if possible i prefer that such reminder is not the horn of the firemen coming to extinguish the fire i caused)

Installation:

Place dont_let_it_burn.desktop in /home/YOUR_USERNAME/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus

Place dont_let_it_burn.sh in /home/YOUR_USERNAME/bin

Place dont_let_it_burn.au in /home/YOUR_USERNAME/bin

IMPORTANT: you need to point to a valid audio file, supported bu the apply command (wav or au for example). I have included a small sample file, dont_let_it_burn.au, if you place it in the bin directory then you dont need to do anything else. If you want another file just modify dont_let_it_burn.sh setting a valid path in the variable FULL_PATH_TO_AUDIO_FILE
