MouseCount!
February 25, 2004 12:42 PM   Subscribe

MouseCount counts the number of times you click your mouse--information useful to computer usage studies, ergonomics, repetitive stress measurement, and more. This program saves you the trouble of counting all those clicks yourself! Screw that, I'm just a curious dork. (fyi: link goes to description page only, but the download is a .zip file)

...but why do we have to "install" even the dumbest little apps? Can't we just get a stand alone executable? Why the install w/ menu and uninstall etc etc. I especially love it when they install themselves w/o warning and then don't provide an uninstall.

I think this one needs an "install" so that it can copy the shortcut into your StartUp folder in your Start Menu. I suppose it could have been a batch script.. but oh well

See also: WhatPulse, which counts your keystrokes. (You can even join a team and see who's stroking the most keys.)

There is also Project Dolphin, which seems to use the same program/database/web interface as WhatPulse. (My username there is this one.) I think the original Pulse project was also called Project Dolphin.

So far I have hit 1,877,010 keystrokes since joining on October 30th, 2003. Woah.

I still haven't broken 100k keystrokes in a day, though. Closest I've come is probably about 50-60k.

I want to see how many kilometres my mouse has travelled this year.
