Many Many Features are here:

Wow, Mantis has a lot of interesting features I didn't know about. It even has Subversion (or CVS) integration! For those also interested, this article describes how to do it.

Hi mojomuse,

Thanks for your comments! I will add reporting functions after I've done the basic functionality I have in mind. A "pause" function might be a nice idea - thanks for the suggestion.

I'm a bit worried by the CPU issues. WorkCoach uses a few percent of CPU on my machine, and I "only" have an AMD Athlon XP 2800 CPU. I've never seen it use as much CPU as you mention. I'd like to get some more information on the issues you're having: what kind of computer are you using? Fairly recent computer? Windows XP or other Windows version? How do you measure the CPU load? Are you doing anything special when the CPU load is so high? Any idea why it's dropping when you are surfing, as you mentioned?

Are other people having these issues? Tomos, you reported high CPU load earlier, is this similar to what you are experiencing?

I'm still thinking about the messages I'd like to implement so I'm not sure how exactly they will look. In the next version, you will be able to set daily budgets for projects. The messages should for example warn you if you have exceeded the budget, or if you are spending a lot of time on projects you hadn't planned (hadn't set a budget for on that day). Any suggestions are welcome.

I still think the idea of a program to keep you motivated / smiling is really nice.

Edit: Uh... mouser posted about the same as I did simultaneously, so... me too!

Hi everybody,

My name is Arjen (pronounced "AR-yen"), I'm 33 and I live in Utrecht, a city in The Netherlands known for its canals, Dom church tower and university. I currently work for an environmental consulting company, where I develop software for the environmental field. Our software is mainly used by governmental organisations for managing their environmental data (e.g. soil data, but also environmental permits).

I learned to program on the venerable Commodore 64 and have been doing it (on and off) ever since. I program under Windows at work, but I am using Linux for my daily computing tasks at home. Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to programming under Linux yet - hopefully in the future.

I enjoy hiking in the "great outdoors" to compensate for my inactive time behind the screen.

Post New Requests Here / Typewriter 0.1.0

Here is something really simple.

You can type in the editbox at the bottom. Press enter to add it to the file. You can edit the whole line you are typing, but of course, once you've added it you can't.

Pressing Save... well uhm, saves the file.

You can paste in the editbox right now and there is no word counting or session timing (yet). Also, the program does not warn you when you exit and haven't saved the file.

The program requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.
