Default Simple Computer Timer?

My parents are now making me write down what times I get on and off the computer... so I thought I'd ask if anyone knows of a command-line or simple exe timer.

I want one key to start, another to stop, another to reset, and when I start and stop it shows the start/stop times plus the total. Anyone know of one?

LOL But see, that takes effort.

Right now I'm using paper.

And I haven't done anything, that's the problem. When my report card came in, I had 3 B's and 3 A's, so my parents took my computer away period. After she saw I had A's in the classes I had B's in before, she gave it back, but only for an hour and half a day.

Plus, adding times off paper takes effort, and say, I might forget to start it once or twice?

What will happen if you are Shinking something that does not require your attention??? Should this count as time on the computer?? You could be doing homework while your computer is processing.

Just like me doing housework while the computer is ripping and shrinking!

In case you can't find it

Using Event ViewerEvent Viewer maintains logs about program, security, and system events on your computer. You can use Event Viewer to view and manage the event logs, gather information about hardware and software problems, and monitor Windows security events.

Open Event Viewer.

Notes

To open Event Viewer, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event Viewer.
For information about using Event Viewer, in Event Viewer, on the Action menu, click Help.

@jm, I don't REALLY want an accurate timer

@soup, I'll check those out.

@LT, yeah I know, it's just because they want me to have all A's, and I don't, but I don't see why they don't get that my computer time is totally unrelated to my grades.

I am with Lt. Columbo on this one.

I mean really, it sounds like a bunch of BS to me. I used to think you were born with common sence, boy is that ever an illusion.

Since the family is not working together, maybe a class on common sence, needs to be taken.

See, I'm not as mischevious as you all thought

I mean, I did do something bad back in 8th grade that caused me to have to move my computer to the sunroom for a few months, but ever since then I haven't done anything bad! (well except try to mail something to one of my online friends, then lie about it... but that's not computer related either)

They might feel that if you studied more you would do better. How many hours a day were you on the computer before they limited you to 1.5 hours? Have your grades fallen since you started spending a lot of time on the puter? My kids didn't do bad in school but there were times they had to be pushed a little bit.
