Some of you might know that I have worked with Frank Lamontagne of Ruby Fleebie on a project called Ecstatik!. That was the beginning of something.
Now, we are very pleased to announce you our new project : TimmyOnTime.
What is TimmyOnTime?
TimmyOnTime is a IM-based time management tool
. To use it, you only need a Jabber client like Google Talk or Gaim (MSN or AIM users don't despair! We also added support for these 2 networks). To have Timmy track the time on your projects, you only have to chat with him via your IM! Let's say for example you want to create the following new project : Achieve hapiness
. Well, you just tell Timmy about it and you write : create project achieve hapiness
Timmy will create your project and tell you if everything went OK in the process. Now that you have a project, you might want to create some tasks? Nothing is easier : create task smile more often
At this point, Timmy have started the first session on your new task. To stop the timer, just write : stop
Web access is optional
That's right. One of the important thing for Frank and me was to make optional the web registration process. So, if you don't want to bother about the website, just use your IM and chat with Timmy. However, we're pretty sure you'll want the added features of a web access (project / task renaming, time editing, etc).
It's your chance!
the number of users that can access TimmyOnTime. If everything goes smoothly, we will increase that number slowly over time.
During this alpha period, we would appreciate that you give us feedback on the application. Also, if you find bugs, it would be nice that you let us know! ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
