Gnome 2.24 adds a new Time Tracking feature, which I would have found useful. I don’t have Gnome 2.24 at work, but I do have a Unix-based operating system… Here’s my new ~/bin/track:

date >> ~/time_tracking
vim ~/time_tracking +

Now, if I could only get vim to automatically hit “A” and space for me afterwards… (I’m betting there’s a way to do it, but AFAIK vim can only receive ex-mode commands as parameters).

Edit: …and, of course it’s possible. Here’s the new version:

echo "`date` " >> ~/time_tracking
vim ~/time_tracking + -c 'startinsert!'
