Summary0000017: It would be good to have a method of indicating when FFDL has completed a long download/conversion
DescriptionI tend to prefer long stories, and because I don't always have internet access, I use this great program to download them as EPUB's.

Most of the stories I download are relatively short. But at least a dozen or more of my regular stories are very long, 600 chapters or more. As such, it's very inconvenient to just sit and watch FFDL slowly work it's way through in order to know when to do the next fanfic.

Therefore, I wish there was an option built into FFDL that would beep or make some noise when it completed the conversion. Perhaps you could put it as an option on the CONFIGURATION screen so that users could A) Indicate if they want it or not, and B) If they do, it would beep a nose after 'X' minutes or 'YYY' seconds.

For me, I'd probably set it for a 2-3 minute duration. Anything less than that and I'd already have my eye on it, but for anything more, I'd like to be able to do other things while I'm waiting and then return to FFDL when it's completed the conversion.
Steps To ReproduceDownload any long FanFic. For example, try this one (over 930 chapters):

I currently have a very fast new computer, but this takes between 25-35 minutes, depending on other internet usage.

In re-reading my Feature Request, I realize that the 3rd paragraph isn't as clear as I would have wished. So I'll rewrite it here in a better format:

Therefore, I wish there was an option built into FFDL that would beep or make some noise when it completed the conversion. Perhaps you could put it as an option on the CONFIGURATION screen so that users could A) Indicate if they want it or not, and B) If they do, it would beep a nose AT THE ENDOF THE PROCESS, IF THE STORY DOWNLOAD/CONVERSION TAKES MORE THAN 'X' minutes or 'YYY' seconds.

Thanks! I hope that helps.
