Undistract-me Notifies You When Terminal Commands Are Completed

Undistract-me is a simple tool that notifies you when a command you run in a terminal which takes longer than ten seconds to finish is done.

Besides letting you know that the command has finished running, the notifications sent by Undistract-me display the command you ran (useful if you run multiple commands in the same time) and the number of seconds it took for the command to finish.

This can be useful e.g. when you start to compile something and then you switch to some other window to read your emails or whatever and get distracted and forget about the command you ran: Undistract-me displays a notification when the command / job you ran in the terminal is done so you can go back to the terminal and see the final result, etc.
