Computer programmers … is there such a thing?

A program that will work in conjunction with the computers ‘clock’ and, for instance, allow one to use a computer microphone to say a message … and then have that verbal message start repeating itself (perhaps at one minute intervals) at the designated time?


Thank you so much for any info you could provide.

Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

I'm not aware of any, although I would be surprised if someone somewhere had not already done it. Code wise, it would be fairly trivial.

Hi groovicus, and thanks.

I wonder if you could suggest a couple search terms I could use with 'Google' as I've discovered that the poor thing doesn't read minds (gentle smile) and often end up laughing at myself for spending hours getting links to odd sites.

Thanks again,
Mara
