now there is a program called focalfilter (http://www.focalfilter.com/)
that does this, it would be nice if there were a system tray interface and you could block more than 1 set of websites at a time

27
I am a freelancer so I get distracted easily on facebook. Can someone write an app to block a website for a certain amount of minutes. That way i could do work for 2 hours while i disable facebook.com

Ideally i'd like it to sit in the system tray and have a right click menu block website, and you type it in or choose it from recent list and then choose how many minutes you want it blocked.

This might be able to be accomplished by editing the windows hosts file and then re-editing it when the time is up.

Ok well thank you to a special friend who donated a few hours of his time to phonegap,
I have now come up with the alpha/beta version of android client!!!

check out my brand new android time tracking app --
 https://cworklog.com.../cworklog.latest.apk
 
test out with: username: test116 password: test116

(if you use this for production, make sure you double check time logs, this is beta software)

Ok originally that is what I was thinking of doing, selling the source code for private installs.
In the mean time, I have instead received advice for charging a monthly fee (which I plan on implementing in the next few months at cworklog.com).

Depending on the price or interest, I still may sell the source for private installation, but the problem is what licensing do I put on the source code, and what about upgrades? Since the main site (cworklog.com) will be updated frequently with added features, you may find you want those features.

Since the original post,  I've changed the web server to linode, I have purchased a security certificate, i have paid programmers and testers to help get cworklog.com on the road and I am in the middle of working on an windows/macos/linux time-tracker that synchronizes to the server while it is online, and still tracks your time while you are offline (the current GUI only works while online).

In short, in about 3 months, I will have a monthly payment plan to use the secure https://cworklog.com with all the updates and features.

As far as a private installation, you might want to contact me about rights and what you intend to use it for and perhaps we can come up with something. ([email protected]).

Notes* I am also looking to do an android and iphone app to also monitor offline usage.

if you know php you can use dompdf to convert html to pdf
comes in handy
example code below:
Spoiler

   $contents = '<html><head></head><body><h2>Your Html Here</h2><center>hi</center></body></html>';
   require_once("lib/dompdf/dompdf_config.inc.php");
  
   set_time_limit (0);
   $dompdf = new DOMPDF();
   $dompdf->load_html($contents);
   //$dompdf->set_paper('paper', 'landscape');
   $dompdf->render();
  
   $dompdf->stream("Invoice", array("Attachment" => false));
   exit(0);


i used it to generate invoices at https://cworklog.com

Good ol notepad++ and Chrome ctrl-shift-j for debugging for me.

Wow, nice resource.  I'll be looking at this later; especially the Regex's; been wanting to learn that for a while, especially as it seems a pre-requisite for Linux hackery, and I never bothered to learn much beyond the basics.
Thanks to you and Josh  :Thmbsup:

I have been using RegexBuddy for several years now, a must tool for regular expressions worth every penny i spent on it, that will teach it to you by example.

Editing the time (minutes worked) should modify the End Time, after putting "10" for 10 minutes, look over the end-time and confirm if it is actually 10 minutes. If you are satisfied, press enter

Hey I'm pretty sure this is an IE8 javascript engine problem, meaning if you allow your computer to update to IE9 everything should be fine.
My computer just upgraded automatically so I can't test it out on IE8 again.

Is there a reason you want IE8? Or just haven't thought about it?

Because if there IS, I can work on a fix for it, if not, I won't worry about it.
Thanks,
Jim

Work Log GUI Works on Linux!!!
Today I decided to test the gui 0.9 on linux (Ubuntu 12.10) using wine (if you don't have wine type sudo apt-get install wine)

Simply download and extract the zip then right click WorkLogGui.exe and choose
"Open With Wine Windows Program Loader"

Now you can log your time on the cworklog.com cloud using Linux AND Windows
Drawbacks
 - the javascript engine does not work, thus making these things not work and useless:
 - Automatic-login,
 - the pop up menu calling Start and Stop time log useless
 - The pop up asking for specific time log notes to not pop up (you'll have to log your notes using time_log_show.php

Everyone: A new version of the GUI Client has been released 0.9 with a security fix. Please update immediately as there was a problem passing the username and password through the $_GET string allowing log files to contain it.

http://cworklog.com/...orkLogGUI.latest.zip



minor notes from today so far:
# close to tray should be default setting for an app like this imo
Hmm, I'll need more feedback to justify changing the default.
# I get a tray-popup after 30 seconds idle time [after two minutes inactivity it automatically stops the timer] - this is too soon imo, I find it pops up more often than I want and considering the (default?) two min limit on inactivity I think it would be better at the half-way (one minute) mark
Yeah i was always wondering about this, i just kind of got used to it personally, how about at the 75% mark?

# I right-clicked the app and added login details to prefs - I didnt get to see any image at any stage of the procedure. I prefer this myself :up: it's a functional app, you just want to log-in and work.
Of course... I dont want any non-mini pages showing up either. :)
# if you login in the initial window (rather than via prefs) does it offer to save the login details? If not, that would be a logical addition.
Good idea! i'll implement that in the next version
# ticking noise is nice but too subtle I find. I barely notice it unless the volume is quite high. (Volume currently @ 20 here - I can hear other stuff mostly quite well at that volume.) I got used to it :up:

Yeah it's nice because it lets you know it is still running and you are still "at work"
But on another note, if you want to change the sound just go to the /sounds directory and copy another sound file with the same file name. If you find a good one maybe i'll include it in the next release!



Gui Future Updates
Instead of wrapping the website in a mini web browser, I want to get a real web service for cworklog.com allowing development on other operating systems very easy. What do you all think?

Ok, contact has been made and I have confirmed that this happens on machines where IE 8 is installed, I dont know about IE 7 or IE 6, but IE 9 produces no such error.

The problem has been fixed in version 0.897 which can be gotten here:
 http://cworklog.com/.../WorkLogGui_0897.zip
or the latest can always be gotten at
  http://cworklog.com/...orkLogGUI.latest.zip
(in case this post gets out of date)

A note to everyone else: Can anyone with Windows please try out the client-side GUI. It has amazing features such as auto-stop-logging when idle
All of your work logs are the same, whether using the GUI or using the website.


on that same note, if you have an android or iphone please do try http://cworklog.com

Can i watch you try this live? my email is

contact made

EDIT/ @relipse - I suspect we're on different timezones -
you can see from my PM icon whether I'm online or not
(heading off shortly)

Ok, contact has been made and I have confirmed that this happens on machines where IE 8 is installed, I dont know about IE 7 or IE 6, but IE 9 produces no such error.

That being said, it is only a pop up message and does not affect the rest of the software, so you can still use it, But I will get to the bottom of this.

Your link diverts to my worklogs ?

Forgot to say:
I'm on an admin account but I have UAC at the highest level.

I use a clipboard manager to remember/paste the password.
I repasted it in prefs and restarted the app after:

Running as admin makes no difference.

When I start, I see the minimal window with login fields & button - the fields are now filled.
It seems to try to login -but I dont really know- there is a pause anyway, and then I get the error about the file.
Then I see the image as per your post #21

I am then able to login manually no problem

Exactly the same if I run as admin or not.

The only other machine I have here is Win 8 - I can try that tomorrow to compare.

Can i watch you try this live? my email is <my-dc-username>@gmail.com

Thanks,
Jim

After I add my login details to preferences, this is what I see on start up:
 (see attachment in previous post)
(should it not log me in automatically?)

Ok, after you add your login credentials to the Preferences -> Server tab, you need to close the program and re-open it.

If you see the main website coming up in the mini browser that means there is an error.
Basically the app loads a minified version of the website seen here: http://cworklog.com/index.php?mobile=1
If the login screen does not look like that, then perhaps the credentials are incorrect.

What I am concerned about is the file not found error. Did you try running the app as administrator?
Is your account a guest account or anything?

When I look in settings, my name and password are already saved (I didnt add them there manually - maybe they were picked up from the ini file).

The password is slightly encrypted so modifying the ini file will not work directly (for the password). However, the other fields can be changed perfectly fine. The Preferences reads from the INI file yes, so that is why there is already some text there.
