What are fun new activities my husband and I can try together?

Mr. Pterodactyl and I have realized we enjoy trying and learning new things together. We especially like it if we can take a short lesson or a few short lessons first. What are some (not outrageously expensive) things we could try? [more inside]

Best basic time-tracking iOS app?

I'm looking for a basic time-tracking iOS app, to keep track of how much time I spend on which work-related activities. Older suggestions either cost a lot of money, or don't seem to be friendly enough. I don't need to be able to make invoices or anything. [more inside]

Do you have a city with an awesome mass transit app?

I just read this comment, and thought this was AWESOME. But unfortunately, it kinda doesn't work. Does your city have an app (iOS preferable, but I can always get a cheap android phone to check it out), that has an AWESOME app for mass transit? Whats the app? "Real time tracker" is what I'm looking for (i think). It need not be awesome in terms of fonts, design, etc. I kinda just want it to be more than a list of schedules. [more inside]

Help me buy a new time clock

I'm the office manager for a 50+ person machine shop. Our old manual time clock is about to die and I need to buy a new one. We're thinking of going with fingerprint ID - any pitfalls? Boss would like the clock to ask the employees "Were you injured at work today? Yes or No" and have them answer upon punchout. Do you manage a time clock that you would recommend?

Synchronizing a Spreadsheet to a Time Line

I am looking for a program that synchronizes movement through a timeline to identical times as successively displayed in a spreadsheet. Specifically, I want to play an audio file and as the file plays, I want unique elements in the audio file that I've identified at specific times to be highlighted in the spreadsheet. I want to show very detailed and subtle changes in B as they occur in A. Does anything like that exist or does it have to be built?

What should I do with free time, not bound to 9-5 hours

Ok, I just got laid off with three months salary in lieu of notice. I'm NOT looking for advice on job hunting. What I am looking for is how to spend this awesome free time wisely! I'm planning to increase my gym classes to 5 times a week, planning lunches with friends, going to sample sales and writing the book I always wanted to write. What other cool activities can I do that I can't normally do with a 9-5 job, or would be too expensive or inconvenient? [more inside]

Give more than four dates for chemistry to develop?

I've gone on four dates with a woman. The conversation is great, but I haven't felt a spark. In this situation, I'm torn between two things that I'm trying to change in my approach to dating: First, I'm trying to lessen my tendency to decide ASAP whether a relationship will work out, before I really get to know someone. Second, I'm trying to lessen my tendency to fail to end relationships that I'd rather not be in. The first change says, "Go on more dates and see if chemistry develops." The second change says, "Don't drag something out when you know you're not feeling it; be honest." What says MetaFilter? What are your experiences with giving chemistry more time to develop?

Are there Universal Task Codes for Graphic Design?

Lawyers have the Uniform Task Based Management System. Doctors have CPT Codes. But what about other industries, like marketing, advertising, and graphic design? The company I work for is developing a list of tasks so we can report our time in a meaningful way, but it's proving to be a more extensive task than anyone anticipated. Surely there's a standardized list for design or advertising professionals. [more inside]

Help me understand work habits. How much time is spent ...not working?

At work, no one has ever monitored my time or even told me what hours I should be working, so I'm not sure what is appropriate. I'm a good performer, but am still on edge and worried I could be seen as inappropriate. I understand no one can give 100% all the time, but lately I spend more time browsing or chatting with coworkers. I don't want to get a surprise reprimand or be viewed as a slacker. Please help me determine what is and isn't acceptable in the workplace. [more inside]

He went from 3 nights a week to once a week? Is he losing interest?

I've been seeing a guy for 2.5 months that I've known for a year. I'm 33, he's 38. I ended a 10 yr relationship last year so I apologize ahead of time for having the dating skills of a 23 yr old. We're in a meetup group and participated in weekly events long before we started dating. We spent the first month seeing eachother 1x/week, that built to 2x a week plus Fri or Sat. He seemed to really enjoy lying down with me talking about our day. (similar jobs). Our dates were rarely planned more than 24 hrs in advance. It was usually: "What are you doing tonight/tomorrow? Do you want to do A,B, C?" I did that with prior relationships. [more inside]

Looking for a song that was wrongly tagged "the bravery - time wont.."

I remember a song from around 2008 that was tagged the bravery- time wont let you go. Ive basically listened to both their sun and moon album but its not one of those songs. It starts with a strong piano and and its kinda slow but the drums are prominent in the song. Its killing me and i cant find it anywhere. I can half remember it in my head and it sounds like it could be by the bravery but im not excluding similar sounding artists like the editors. Cant remember any lyrics though!

Is there an app for that?

I’m interested in the DURR, a simple display-less “watch” that vibrates every 5 minutes to influence your perception of the passing of time. Since DURR is not currently shipping and I already own an iPhone with a clock and a vibrating buzzer, I feel like this should be doable with an app. There’s already a Pebble app so I’m sure it’s not crazy. If this doesn’t currently exist, how hard might it be to write one myself? I’ve compiled things in XCode before but not written my own from-scratch Objective-C, so I’d be approaching this as a newcomer.

Documentary on Time

Increased fusion in the sun's core: How long to reach the surface?

As I understand it, energy is transfered via convection and radiation within the sun and may take tens of thousand of years until reaching the surface and being radiated away. Would this hold even when the energy flux is much bigger? [more inside]
