Hi there,

 I'm a not-very-often-checking-in chronic procrastinator.

Today I downloaded TimeSprite, which is an application that runs in the background of my PC, checks every minute which window has focus, and reports the stats of how much time in my day I've so far spent in a particular application.

 So far, it seems to sometimes know which specific site I'm on, so is able (sometimes) to tell the difference between work-related sites and Facebook. This is the main thing I need.

 I have been procrastinating for pretty much ever, but this is quite a useful insight, because as well as being a procrastinator I am also quite a hard worker (on the things I fundamentally want to do, that is).

This at least tells me which tasks are retaining my attention, and which I'm staying on, and which ones are seeing me spend half (or more!) of the time on facebook.

At least, that's the theory. Has anyone else used a programme like this for this purpose? Does it help, or is it a distraction in itself?
