Is anyone aware of any time tracking software that will show my client how much I worked on a certain project. I know studio czar has something like this but the time you have to manually enter it yourself. Any help guys?

Have a look at Billings (http://www.marketcircle.com/billings/index.html).
It records time with a timer, and places each time item into a log. You can then create an invoice from the log.
The problem is that there is no way to print the log, and when you create the invoice the log detail is lost, so it might not meet your needs.

It was originally called iWork but they changed it to iBiz. I used it for a little bit but I'm not sure how it compares to billings.

You may can do a search on apple's download page for invoice and several came up. Or try version tracker.

I had a look at iBiz. That might have what you are looking for (try out the 10 day trial).

iBiz is hard for me to look at. Billings on the other hand, seems much more intuitive. I really wish that there was an easy to use web application that I could install on my own server like one of these, so that I could track this information from multiple locations. Integration with PayPal would also be a key feature.

Try http://www.ultrize.com/timesheet/ and poke around Google for terms like "php timesheet invoice"

I'm not an idiot. I've looked into many different web-based applications of the like, but none of them fit my needs. One day I'll end up writing my own.
