How should I track my internet usage?
May 11, 2008 8:41 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for an application that tracks my software and website usage that is not RescueTime. I'm extremely uncomfortable with the data being transmitted to a website and want something that stores it on my computer, not anywhere else. I've also used MeeTimer, and found it too buggy. Does anyone have any suggestions?

There are several alternative suggestions near the end of this lifehacker.com thread about RescueTime.

Mac or PC? For Macs, there's Slife, which looks nice and is comprehensive. The trial version will let you track three programs at once; I only stopped recording myself because I felt too guilty about my procrastination...

Actually, better yet, Slife is for both OSX and windows.

I've never used it personally (I'd rather not know this kind of thing) but TrackTime does this I believe for OS X.

(It's not my project, but I do know the developer!)

I'm using Ubuntu, actually.

Old post, but I regard AskMefi as a vast helpful repository of human knowledge, therefore:

Personal Task Manager, Windows-based, but opensource, a sourceforge project.
No registration required, direct download, saves data to your own computer, etc etc. I just pimped it out on another thread.
