Bought one of those cheapo clock movements off Amazon for a fiver to fix the clock in the kitchen but got it sorted in the meantime with a squirt of WD40.

Just printed out a clock face with 9-5 in Green and the rest in Red. Put my accumulated rate instead of the hour markers.

Now sat watching the revenue tick up.

Sadly addictive. :o

Simple things for simple people, eh.

Quite the opposite. Hence anything past billable time is in red.

It used to be screensavers. I knocked up a screensaver many years ago when I first started that used to tick up the money. When I came back from a rather pressing toilet break it would be nice to know how much that had cost clientco.

It's set that way to avoid accidentally working for free.
