Default good computer useage tracker..

My wife and i got into it becasue she has no time for herself and needs it, but she wont do anything about it . I pointed out that she is on the damm FB all the time and she disagrees., I would like to find a usegae program so i can show her just how much time she has to waste every day.. yes i know this will piss her off but WTF. I am already a target so why not make it a good target today.

What does she need the time for? It may just be her way of asking you to help out a little more around the house.

To be fair, you only said you wanted a usage tracking software, not if anyone has a recommendation. It sounded like you had no clue. Actually it sounded like you were angry and had no clue.

Why not just have her clock in when she starts and clock out when she's done. No spyware! Or set a timer and give her, say 30 minutes to do FB. When the buzzer goes off, so does she.

Or just suggest doing FB AFTER some other stuff that she wants to do. After all, if she really wanted to do other things, she'd do THEM before doing FB.

I have doubts that showing her a printout of the amount of time she spent on FB is going to help the discussion. More likely it's going to look like you went to a lot of trouble to prove her wrong.

Yea... this is just ASKING for trouble. Best of luck to you. If she needs time to herself and won't do anything about it, that sounds like a her problem. Not something you need to be digging your grave for. I love sleeping on the couch, but not for long periods of time. I can see the whole thing going like this "You've gone and placed tracking software on our computer? What you don't trust me!?!?! What else are you looking for?"
