Didn't really know where to turn for this, so I figured I'd ask here. Do you guys know any programs that will automatically track the amount of time a program is open? I just finished developing a game a few months back, and am about to start my next huge project. I'd like to be able to track how much time I spend in the dev kit, that way I can have some fairly ridiculous numbers towards the end.

If you guys and gals have any ideas, let me know!

just take note of how long you spend in the dev env every day?

But no, seriously, I am not aware of an app that does the math for you, but...
go to the dev env file location > right-click > Properties.
Last accessed. See attached pic. then just do the math.

I THINK that .Net has a plug-in that records total time spend on a project file, or that is that VB6 used to have an extension that did so.
Whats the Dev Env? Also, making an app to do so would be easy enough... you start the app, it starts YOUR dev env, and it runs a timer recording how much time spent in total for that app. Simple addition... but this is if your starting a new project. existing projects the app cant calculate, also, if you modify the source w/o using the timer launcher, it wont take that in to account also.
