I need to temporarily become a workaholic

Kid Charlemagne used to make drugs for a living...

So I just got word that I'm getting laid off at the end of the month. Work has been getting more and more insane for the past few years, and I'm getting a pretty good severance package so I can't say I'm exactly mournful about this. You know that guy who loses his job and spend the next several months never putting on pants and only answering to the name of his level ninety night elf. Help me not be that guy! [more inside]

Best Simple Time Tracking App for iPhone?

Can anyone recommend a streamlined time tracking app for the iPhone? I'm looking for something that will let me set up a few general categories — desk work, studio work, commute, gym, etc. — and basically lets me pick one and hit a big start/stop button. Export functionality in some way (even dirt-simple) is needed, fancy stuff like invoice generation / project management is not. The goal is to get a rough statistical overview of how I spend my days, not to get obsessive granularity or handle timesheets, so the ideal app would be about two taps to pick a category and start the timer.

Time Warner cable box problem- please help!

I was watching TV tonight when our Time Warner Explorer 8300 cable box started whirring, our cable shut off, and weird things started appearing on the cable box panel. There were countdowns and APP and hOHD are now interchangeably flashing on the panel. My husband called Time Warner and was told that this may be a hardware problem in which case we can only get the box replaced which means we'll lose everything we've DVR'd. We have a lot of programs saved so if anyone has any advice or experience, please share! [more inside]
