I’ve just discovered the hamster-applet package in Fedora 11, and I think I’ve found another great productivity tool. Courtesy of Project Hamster, it’s a time tracking tool that doesn’t try to be more clever than I am, and instead stays out of my way while I work. It gives me a reminder on an adjustable time basis to see if I’ve changed tasks, has completely configurable categories for easy entry, and produces slick and simple HTML reports. It stores its data in an sqlite database, and it’s written in Python so it’s easy to hack as well. Worth a try if you’re looking for time and task tracking that’s simple but flexible!
