Hi Giovanni and Jan,

I have related questions on this subject as well...

Up to now, I was clocking time with timeclock-x under Emacs, and files such
as:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
i 2009/02/02 08:45:00 Client1
o 2009/02/02 09:35:00


>> Reading my mails.
i 2009/02/02 09:35:00 Client2
o 2009/02/02 12:30:00


>> Analysing their stuff for CCh.
i 2009/02/02 13:35:00 Client1
o 2009/02/02 17:30:00


>> Written the big report.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This is nice because it is chronological and I have notes about every clocked
time, but that's all...

Org beats this by orders of magnitude. That's why I've decided to begin now to
use Org as well for that.

Here is my example for these first 2 days of April:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

* 2009-04

*** Client1
    :LOGBOOK:
    CLOCK: [2009-04-01 Wed 09:05]--[2009-04-01 Wed 12:00] =>  2:55
    CLOCK: [2009-04-01 Wed 13:10]--[2009-04-01 Wed 16:30] =>  3:20
    CLOCK: [2009-04-02 Thu 08:55]
    :END:

*** Client2
    :LOGBOOK:
    CLOCK: [2009-04-01 Wed 12:00]--[2009-04-01 Wed 12:30] =>  0:30
    CLOCK: [2009-04-01 Wed 16:30]--[2009-04-01 Wed 17:15] =>  0:45

Fantastic is that I can check how much time I've globally worked on which
project for this day and for this month at the same time.

Though:

- how can I associate a one-line comment to every block of time that I clock?
  The goal is to be able to justify, later, what I did on the different days I
  worked for them (and put that in their bill).

  Am I forced to add sub-headlines for every block of time?  Is there another
  better (clearer) way to do?

- is there a possibility to get back, out of such a file, a chronological view
  of the whole file (where all projects are mixed)?

Once again, and mainly to Carsten, thanks a lot^100 for the great work you've
done and shared... This is one fantastic way to lock me more in Emacs, which
is something I love.

Best regards,
  Seb
