  • Show HN: I quit my job and made an automatic time tracker
    - Ability to bucket (or discard) my time AFK. Useful if it was a client call. Good luck on your product! I'm sure you can bring additional innovations to the space. []. - Source: Hacker News / 9 days ago
  • Show HN: Rem: Remember Everything (open source)
    Somebody else pointed out RescueTime, but if keeping it local is a priority, I recommend Qbserve, which I've been using (mostly passively in the background) for a few years now. [0] - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • Is there anything you’ve found immensely helpful in grad school?
    One of the hardest things for me about grad school (that I'm still struggling with!) is figuring out how to schedule my own day when I have few external things keeping my day in shape for me. it's been really helpful just to have the data of how much time I usually spend on things/what I've done that day... I can see where all my time is going lmao and readjust as needed. I use toggl track in conjunction with... Source: 8 months ago
  • Is there any other app who tracks time automatically by monitoring every app, document, and website ?
    Is actually doing this ? I can't seem to figure out if it tracks individual files inside apps. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What are your strategies for a productive writing session?
    An unconventional, and somewhat uncomfortable bit of discipline: I used Qbserve (for mac), which is an automatic time tracker. I taught it which websites were productive (/r/LaTeX, StackExchange, and and which were not (/r/GradSchool etc lol). It notified me when I was spending too much time not being productive, and also notified me when I had done "enough". Source: over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: How do you not keep track of what you did yesterday (and this morning)?
    I use Qbserve [1] after seeing it mentioned in a previous thread. Really helpful for seeing where time was spent over the course of the day/week. Collected data all stored locally too [1] - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Best time tracker ?
    I'm a big fan. It focuses on privacy (doesn't send your data to any servers) It also has many features for freelancers/contractors. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: How to Stay Motivated in the Mornings?
    What helpmed me a lot was getting up very early. I wake up around 4.30/5.00 (without alarm), make a coffee and work till 8 or 9. So I already worked a lot without getting notifications or emails from co-workers, they still sleeping. Around 9 I have a shower and make a little break. Around 10 I work again till 1pm and the rest of the day I'm still online for my co-workers, but not really working anymore. After 1pm... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Launch HN: RescueTime (YC W08) – Redesigned for wellness, balance, remote work
    I tried out RescueTime in the past (~2010 or so) but I was never comfortable sending this data to a remote server. I since found Qbserve[0] which is a similar product, but it keeps all your data local. If I find myself distracted on any given day, then I turn on [1] to kill those distractions. It's not as elegant of a solution as what RescueTime offers, but all my data stays on my machine which is worth... - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
  • Be happier with your time by tracking how you spend it...
    "Snoopers" - or - watches everything you do on your laptop and tells you where you spent you time in again needless precision. Source: about 3 years ago
  • Someone to Pay to Help Me Bill Time
    I just started a free trial of this to see if I can see were I'm losing time: Source: over 3 years ago
