break things then use git to rollback changes

start project over and then git init after learning from the mistakes of this version

let’s not worry about that until the POC is finished <2011-08-08 Mon>


user has many tasks

task has many times

time, check in and check out

nifty looks

nifty user

user login

create a task

/tasks view

current /tasks becomes “manage your tasks”

/tasks/list - is clockin clockout

/tasks/index - manage tasks


new_task_subtask_path(task) will link to /tasks/36/subtasks/new at first

nested resources needs more research on nested resources, things are very broken right now

create a new timer and prefill the task_id

revise clock model - clockin has one clockout, clockout belongs to clockin

timer is not functioning properly clock in out sucks

clock in, stays open

clock out only on a new clock in

destroy unneccessary views - all clock views besides _form

Revisions early august

dependent destroy

daily graph

weekly graph

compare to goals

sell to small businesses to help people track time on projects

“you’re spending a lot of time, on x, try to improve process”

sales process?

“how much time do you spend on value add activities?”

how much time do you spend doing the things you value?

this will help to find out those numbers so you can be more aware

this is a tool for individuals or small businesses to track how much time they spend on things

it can help you make decisions on how to change your time allocations

it will generate meaningful reports and dashboards - LIVE

you will be able to see what you’ve been doing for the last week, compare weeks

you will be able to see what your people are clocking right now (creepy?)

“a project management tool for the individual”

compare to rescue time

rescue time tracks usage on a computer, requires less diligence

this tracks time on any task, requires diligence

aim is to minimize unknown time - show unknown time dash

phase 1 - minimize unknown time

phase 2 - set goals

bring to startup weekend looking for biz plan and cash and marketing

<2011-08-18 Thu> simpleology, intro video reads like some super motivational bullshit

push to redeem coupon for free month, but free month still needs a credit card which will be charged 57$ after

no way to easily exit without evil backbutton

video to confirm email

top bar has how far you are

sounds way too close to scientology, feels like I’m being recruited for some weird lifestyle change and cult

stepping thru from confirmation to login was unclear

this looks like a very deliberate means for establishing a process around actually completing tasks

doesn’t follow DMAIC, just tries to drop in a new process, I’m already dragging my heels on adoption.

much too much click thru already, i’m bored of this.

it also looks like I’m not going to have enough time this morning to try it out

I’ll have to come back to it later

robot on okc, rescue time

recommend a password sentence - reference xkcd comic

6 sigma your life
