ManicTime: Track Application Usage Statistics

I'm exploring the concept of application usage tracking on my machine to better understand what I do everyday. In doing so, I ran across ManicTime. I'm going to give it a try and see what it yields.

UPDATE: Love this tool. After two weeks of use, I'm able to generate pretty pictures and statics of my usage. It even tracks web site usage. This has been handy as we use Atlassian's Jira (web based tool) for our bug tracking.

Are you still using manictime? Any further thoughts on it?

No, my work does not require me to bill different projects at the same time.

It worked wonders for me for several years. I have only good things to say about it and I found it for my use to be perfect.

The highlights were great user interface, ease of use, and decent reports.

I recommend it.
