Weekly review: Week ending December 2, 2011

This week was busy because we were getting ready to launch Project O. Launch date for project O is on Tuesday, launch date for project T is on Wednesday – exciting times!

I switched to using Tap Log for Android instead of Time Recording for Android so that I could easily capture other data (mood, reading, etc.) in addition to activities. I’ve just finished writing the code to analyze the timestamps, so I’ll be able to use the week’s data in today’s review.

W- got the furnace upgraded, so that’s another thing checked off our list.

Noticed I was feeling fatigued at work, so I slept more. Now back to normal, I think.

Slow and steady wins the race!

    Seems that this Tap Log doesn’t support adding “end” time stamp. Just curious about how did you managed to do time tracking :)

      Oh, I wrote a tool that processed all the timestamps, picked the ones representing activities, and made each one end when the following one started. :)

  • BreakDS

    That’s nice. So there will be no time for a “break” haha.

      That’s easy enough to do. Just create activities for breaks, sleep, and other things. :)
