Slim Timing

SlimTimerNormally, it’s not a good sign if you think people are reading your mind, but sometimes it can be convenient. I’ve been using a spreadsheet to track my time for a while now, but it’s not reliable because I forget to enter time once in a while, and a bad record is more frustrating than no record at all. I did a quick search of existing time trackers–at least those that were free or cheap–and decided I could do a web-based one fairly easily. I sketched out what it would look like and the basic functionality, and decided someday I would put it together. Well, as always, wait long enough and someone will do it for you. Enter the Slim Timer.

I’ve been playing with this for a couple of days now, and it works like a charm. Simple, usable, and very functional. I’ve learned my lesson, and rather than writing a scraper, requested that the creator include RSS feeds. Not necessary for most people, I suspect, but I have been gradually trying to collect life indicators via RSS.

    Glad you like it. I’ll be adding a number of features in the coming days (While keeping it simple), one of which is RSS feeds of reports. Is that what you were alluding to or are you looking for RSS feeds of all your time entries. Thanks.

    Yep, I was looking for feeds of the reports. Great news, thanks!
