What is a simple, small, yet nice RSI watcher for Windows?

I'm looking for an equivalent for Dejal's Time out application (Dejal). Any suggestion is appreciated.

Update: Basically, I need a break reminder (Repetitive Strain Injury prevention) tool for Windows.

Thanks!

try WorkRave:

You can use something like a regular time reminder. There's tons of them out there.

Here's just a few:

Well, could you elaborate so I can help you out? –  BioXhazard Jul 5 '10 at 21:05
    
The Time Out app from Dejal - dejal.com/timeout - gently stops you from what you are doing by taking over the desktop. check out the screenshots on their web site. That's what I need, not just a reminder. Thanks anyway. –  Alex Jul 6 '10 at 7:37
