Anyone ? Want a simple circuit that flashes an LED three times and then waits 5 - 15 minutes, then flashes the LED three times and so on. Power source of a 9 volt battery. Let me know. my email is [mod edit: E-mail removed] .. hopefully you are allowed to post that here.

A circuit that's 'simple' in terms of component count would involve a micro-controller. Are you able to program one?

First, was not aware of the email thing... No problem.. I figured someone would fill me in. To answer your question NO! I do not know about a micro-controller at all. I was looking for someone to give me a heads up and what was required for the type of circuit I was looking for in the ways of help, or even offer to design it for me in exchange for some cash. I am very limited in electronics knowledge. Although I could bone up and get a basic idea of design (already an engineer here) thought my time would be better served letting someone else that is proficient in the field of electronics clue me in.

Arduino "blink without delay" good start.
Circuit is simple, plenty of assistance should you go wrong either on the Arduino forum or others.
Just need to get into it and get your head around the basics.

That time period is too long for a 555 timer.
If you are up to a little circuit fab, a variation of this circuit using the CD4060 should work.
