    Hey guys,

    I work remotely and report my hours online every two weeks, then receive a paycheck based on what I report. I would like to report my hours with better accuracy so I decided to create a work account on my MBA so every night I can log in to that account and do solely hourly work. Is there any automator script I could write or free 3rd party applications I could use to easily track and report the length of time I was logged into my work account every two weeks?

    Thank you!

    Take a look at the last command in Terminal. Or a login/logout hook where you dump a timestamp into a logfile.
