In Hamster, on other hand, you tell the app, what you are doing (like

Sound like a great little tool. I used to use it similar in my previous life, my manager made us all to use it. We can define categories for the task we spent time on. But we are not allow to define a category called 'Misc' because that would become the biggest

Can't remember the name of the tool, it was a tcl with Motif widget.

Can the categories be made to loaded from a specific location or files?
Thinking of centrally configured for a small work ground, may be useful for project manager to know how much to charge the clients based on the out put of this tool :)
