I came across a neat tool called AllNetic for tracking time. It can handle two levels of tracking - by projects and by tasks. I've only started to mess around with it, so it's too early to pass judgment one way or another. The author of the software needs some grammatical help though!
I also found a neat egg timer that can act as either a stopwatch or timer.
Why was I looking for timers? Well, to put it mildly, after taking a 'vacation' from serious business, I need to focus on spending time on a regular basis on some core areas instead of wasting so much time with distractions or non-priority work. If I were to list all of the areas, you'd probably wonder where I AM spending time, so I won't waste space here. Suffice to say, my time management skills have been sucking lately.
