i’ve made us a forum team on whatpulse. For those of you that don’t know what it is: it’s a application that runs minimized in your taskbar using barely any resources, it logs how many keys you type( not which ones) how many mouse clicks you make and how far you move your mouse.
so if your already pulsing join and if your not, create an account and join 🙂

lol – my initial reaction was: what the hell is the point in that, but then I became strangely curious as to what my usage might be! I’m still deciding if I can be arsed to install though 😉January 5, 2009 at 2:11 pm #178571
Why oh why ?January 5, 2009 at 2:42 pm #178566adatay92Member
I loathe little applications doing pointless things in the backgroundJanuary 5, 2009 at 3:16 pm #178568
it really is tiny, i just hide mine in the taskbar, its interesting though after a few hours on the internet to see just how many keys you’ve typed, you’ll be surprised.January 5, 2009 at 4:39 pm #178572
Somehow I don’t trust this to “not record” my internet banking passwords….January 5, 2009 at 4:53 pm #178567BritmanMember
I already know I’m addicted to the Internet, I hardly watch TV now. I justify this by saying I’m learning new things, no honest.January 5, 2009 at 5:22 pm #178570AlfiharParticipant
I’d rather not have any unnecessary programs running in the background, especially ones which record things and then sends it to a remote server (that I don’t have control of).
Not that I could install it even if I wanted to as there does not appear to be a working Linux version.January 5, 2009 at 6:39 pm #178564
An article on life hacker made me think of this post.Quote:Once installed the software sits in the background and keeps tabs on your activity. Productivity Meter tracks the active versus idle time, how your active time is split among applications, which applications were used the most, and which websites you browsed and for how long. You can review the stats for the last day, week, month or a user defined block of time.January 6, 2009 at 1:01 am #178574PessimissedMember
The whatpulse project is a very well-established one with thousands of users and teams all over the world.
I can tell you with some certainty that the program does not, and is not capable of, actually recording which keys you press.
It’s a perfectly safe albeit nerdy bit of fun that’s actually rather eye opening – your keyboards are taking a beating!
Hi btw, I’m new here 😉 Black NC10 ftw 😀January 6, 2009 at 8:35 am #178573
