I use this widget a lot, but there's one huge problem. It doesn't back-up the timers. I've had times when my computers crashed, and it deleted all of my timers.

The most recent deletion happened randomly, and it only deleted 75% of my timers.

The only other problem I'm having, is that it doesn't run very smooth.

I donated! This widget totally rawks da haus. It saved my bacon yesterday when I had to do a forced reboot (thanks, Adobe belchware). I didn't know The Daily Grind saved timer data to my HD (most other timers don't). When I rebooted, there was my time -- SAVED!

The Daily Grind, will you marry me?

Cool little widget - it's got a small bug where labelled items show missing image icons (fixed by selecting no label), but apart from that, could be quite useful. I'll give it a go. The price is useful too.

Many thanks for the hard work! :)

OK, so I've been using this for a few projects now, and find it very helpful. One feature request: It would be nice to be able to edit the actual time entry. In other words, if I forgot to stop the timer I could go back edit it. Otherwise it works great. A fantastic interface design.

I've been waiting for someone to come up with something as clean and useful as this. The only issue I'm having is that when I click on the x the timer won't go away. Is there a quick fix?

I've found it! Needed to double click the x. Was that written down somewere that I missed? I can't wait to use this tomorrow at work!
