Sure you can, but if you want to make a program that's actually worth using, and looks reasonably nice, it's more work than that, and you know it.

FYI: I have now completed the application, and it has taken me some 5 hours to get everything the way I wanted it, including making icons etc.

I could have told you EXACTLY how long it had taken, had I had an application I could start and stop in the system tray to record time spent on a certain project. But I didn't have that! D'Oh! | :doh:

So there is 5 hours gone I could have spent on something else. And even if what you say is true (which it isn't), it would still have been 45 minutes spent unnecesarily had I been able to find such an application.

Furthermore, it's 5 hours I'm not going to get paid for, despite the fact that the program is going to be used for work management.
