Suggestion - Computer Hours
1. I think it has to be how long it is Actively used, due to the fact that if it was just when computers are on, people would leave their computers on to gather time.

Rather than people like me who turn it off and on often, so i will actually find out when i was using the computer.

2. Well i think we should consult Wasted before the poll. If he agrees then we can get a poll up.

Oh, feel free to poll up! It might influence his decision. It might not... but it's worth a shot Wink

I might rephrase that a little bit. "Computer usage uptime" implies that you're actually using the computer - and that's the one I'd vote for. "Whatpulse usage uptime" doesn't make too much sense. I'm *always* running WhatPulse, so how would this be different from computer sage uptime?

I would put "Total computer uptime (including idle hours)" and "Active computer uptime (does not include idle hours)" as options - or perhaps you could rephrase that a little better.

Either way, my vote would go for a feature that indicates active computing time rather than how long you've managed to keep your computer running.

Maybe the "Edit Poll" link might work? :-P

It should be on the upper-right corner of the poll box.

I'm still against just computer uptime since people can leave their computer on 24/7, and I'm still against 'active usage' time since it's hard to accurately find the time, and because according to X-Kal it would be more resource intensive to keep track of times.
X-Kal Wrote:One simple possibility is to track the time of the last keystroke or mouse click, but this gets to be resource-intensive. Now, instead of having a mere counter, you've got to keep track of times and such.

So if it's going to be just pure uptime it's not really worth the addition.

Yeh I like to save on my electricity and do not keep my PC on all the time, but I know a whole load of friends who do.. so that aspect would be unfair.

I already know how long Im running the WhatPulse tracker for, because Im on Wakoopa, which tracks hours of software used.
