I saw this today on Lifehacker and it sounded possibly useful, especially if you have trouble limiting your breaks to 5 minutes:

There is a link at the bottom of the post to 10 additional distraction stoppers, which is also kinda interesting.

That's a great resource, Bob, thanks! Still, I feel my biggest problem with the pomodoro technique is keeping my breaks under 10 minutes. I feel I'm not ready until 15 minutes (at least) have passed. I'm tempted to start making the pomodoro longer, so at least I spend less time on breaks as a whole... Any suggestions?

For those whom software control is too weak there is a great toy on
your desk for time measurements:
