A gizmo thing!

Ever wonder just how slow you are at getting your page done? Need a reminder that you're distracting yourself every 10 seconds?
well now there's (actually, I don't think it has an official name...) : a simple little timer that floats on top of your window and tracks how much time you're actively spending on a program (like Ps, or Manga studio, etc) and stops the clock when you decided to dick around.

It popped up on my tumblr dash a couple days ago, and I actually like it. It saves your time as well, so you can pull it up again when you resume working a day later. I've always wondered exactly how much time it takes me to line/color/shade, but by the time I wonder I have forgotten when I started.

Just thought I'd share a fun little tool that'll silently judge you as you waste time on the internet instead of working.

Oh damn, that's awesome! I always try to time myself while drawing but usually just end up neglectingn to mind the clock at all :(

Of course we'd love to hear more about this, dj, we've all been waiting for your input!

Why, who am I to withold such findings?
I've ben using this do-dad for a couple months now and my average comic page from scanning it into photoshop, to saving it back as a .jpg is ~8 hrs. So if I get really behind, I can just call in sick to work and knock out a page, right? Oh wait, that's only my productive time, not my goofing-off time. So probably close to ~20 hrs then...
