A task tray or tiny "always on top" window that listens for hotkeys to start and stop a timer.

I have found some software to do this kind of thing, but nothing very lightweight. Please do let me know if you see something like this out there.

I too have been wanting to write this, but I'm too busy logging my every move to have free time for actual coding.  ;)

A task tray utility that allows you to:
- configure a list of free form text strings (tasks) which show up on the task tray menu
- show stop and configure menu items as well

It records the time spent on a given task.

So imagine you come to work. You click the task tray icon, then select the task you are working on. It begins counting time. Later as you switch tasks, you select another menu item/task. And so on through the day. At end of day you choose "stop". All of the time spent on tasks (including start and stop times) are recorded to a csv file.

Also every 30 minutes (configurable) it pops up and says "are you still working on X?" to remind you to log your time.

So for example you might configure this list of menu items:
   Lunch
   Code Review
   Documenting Requirements
   Working PR/CR
   Team Meeting
   ------
   Stop
   Configure

The first few items are configurable. Stop is there for end of day. Configure lets you add/remove menu items and set the reminder timer.

This would be useful for contractors, personal software process adherents, or others who work for anal rententive corporations.

A task tray program which turns on/off the IE proxy server/firewall checkbox:
Tools | Options | Connections | LAN Settings | Use Proxy Server

For those who use their laptop at work behind firewall and one their home LAN. Surely this setting is stored in the registry somewhere, right?
