Xwrits reminds you to take wrist breaks, which will hopefully help you prevent repetitive stress injury. It pops up an X window when you should rest; you click on that window, then take a break. Xwrits's graphics are brightly colored pictures of a wrist and the attached hand. The wrist clenches and stretches "as if in pain" when you shohould rest, slumps relaxed during the break, and points valiantly forward when the break is over. It is trapped behind bars while the keyboard is locked.
