For you hourly employed people, how do you keep track of what your paycheck will be?

It's gotten to the point in my hourly paycheck job that I really want to know what my paycheck will be. Before this job I never had to worry about it because all of my jobs were either technically hourly but I was guaranteed a certain pay per day worked or based on publication stuff and I could get a paycheck whenever I wanted.
I just want to know what my paycheck will be. I tried using Excel before but I just couldn't make a habit out of updating the sheet. That would be a little harder now I'm getting into overtime rather consistently and I don't know how I could build that into the spreadsheet anyway.
If I have to, I'm willing to just let the extra from OT pay to just be a bonus.
I have an XP machine, but am looking to get an iPod Touch and/or Android phone in the near future.
