IDEA - Visualizing time left vs. time needed

(1/1)

Betsy:
I have no programming experience myself, so I have no idea if this is really a "quick and easy" program to make or not.  Please forgive me if it really shouldn't have been posted here.

Here's what I need...something to help me fight the IGAD syndrome (You know IGAD..."I've got all day.")

I'm picturing a "live action" visual representation with two elements:  The time I have left (specified by me) and the time I have estimated I need for my tasks.  So in other words, I'd like to be able to tell it that, between 6am and 4pm, I have to do an estimated 5 hours' worth of chores.  I'd love to be able to see at a glance how much my "time bank" is being depleted, and how many hours/minutes of work I still have to fit into that remaining time.

It would need to be easily editable, so that when I complete a chore I'd allotted 15 minutes for, I can go delete 15 minutes from my estimated remaining chore time for the day.  Does that make sense?

Also, it would be great to be able to run multiple instances of this program, so I can track different time periods with their own allotted tasks.

Of course this is all moot if somebody has already made a cool freeware program that does this...

Thanks so much for considering this idea.  You guys are great!

Maybe this will help : http://www.simile-widgets.org/timeline/

mouser:
interesting idea..
are you saying that for each instance of the program you run it would track and show one interval and one task?
what about a program that let you configure multiple interval+task pairs?
can you elaborate on what the visual display would look like?

i'm thinking this coding snack could be modified for your purposes maybe:
