2021-11-01 Org timer with sound

For today I have another tip. I often need to know when some amount of time has passed. I know about org-timer-set-timer, but I never got to using it because it only gives a screen notification, so it’s useless when you don’t look at the screen.

Or so I thought. It turns out that you can set the variable org-clock-sound and have Org play the given file when the timer runs out. Great!

By the way, you can start the org countdown timer with C-c C-x ; when in Org-mode, but M-x org-timer-set-timer obviously works everywhere.
