Work Timer with Window Coloring and Idle Detection
Python
Windows Aero, system administration

A timer that adjusts your Windows color scheme for immediate indication of its operating mode. Can easily track work or separate projects. Saves each project's hours to a separate file. Pairs excellently with TimeSnapper as you can distinguish what you were working on by color. Pauses when idle for a set time. Regularly saves to disk and uses timestamps for accurate timekeeping. Indispensable for working from home for 1 or more clients.

Displays current project hours as a cursor tooltip when switching modes:
