Timesnapper seems like a solution to my dreaded time sheet task; intelligent idea. Trying it out now. But can it write it down these details for me too, you know, via OCR and such, doing an intelligent analysis of my screen and determining what I’m doing (reading news, blogs or actually working?)please 🙂 I wonder what are the privacy concerns.
