I need to record time spent on a specific project. I'm not working continuously on the project, but put in an hour here, five minutes there etc, and it's becoming quite tedious writing down all the time spent and adding it together.

So I'm looking for a simple stopwatch application. Plenty of those around, with nice GUIs, floating on top windows (which I don't want in this case, but I can see why some people would think it's nice) etc, but all I've find is missing the feature I want the most:

I want to be able to start and stop it by clicking its icon in the system tray so that I don't have to spend additional time locating the GUI window to start and stop it.

Anybody has any suggestions?

And to anticipate the obvious reply: Yes, I COULD roll my own in a matter of hours, but why would I want to spend even a couple of hours reinventing something that already exists?

Apart from that, I know myself too well: If I made my own application, I would spend hours and hours improving, polishing, tweaking, etc. Time that could be well spend doing the real task instead....
