    Time Tracking

    Hi,
    I've been keeping track of billable time in a spreadsheet. However, the hard drive failed.

    I'm sure it had nothing to do with it falling off my desk. (insert "d'oh!")


    I use zoho for invoicing, and am looking for a similar online time-tracking software, so I don't have to use Excel anymore and one that is not dependent on my harddrive.


    Any recommendations?

    I use a timekeeper app that I built myself and that connects to an SQL database hosted on my server with two RAID1 hard drives and daily backups to a third.

    Mind you...I built the timekeeper app myself. That may not be for you.

    Perhaps you would be better off using cloud storage if your hard drive is failing

    @TheGAME1264, very slick.

    @Studio87, I am now saving an xls spreadsheet on the OneDrive folder, which seems to be a cloud-based folder that I can get to on any Windows machine.

    I just installed Linux (Ubuntu) on my new hard drive, so I was thinking of something like evernote that I could use on any platform.

    Maybe google docs?

    Thanks, man. It was necessity. I also wrote a program that auto-generates .DOC invoices on the fly and emails them to all of my clients. Takes about 5-10 minutes to run the batch.
