Trackulous - Track Anything. There have to be ten dozen ways to track your weight online. MeFi users track thteir social athletic accomplishments at WeEndure and Runner+. But what if we wanted to track (and graph) Javelinas Sighted, Cookies Tossed, Fights with Boyfriend, or any other user-defined numerical quantity over time? And what if we wanted to share our statistics with our friends? For that, Trackulous - a simple, elegant, mobile-friendly web tool.

Here's an example: Fights with Boyfriend.

I think that if I used this I would have to add "Hours spent on Trackulous" as a Trackable, and thereby spend less time on everything else I use to waste my time. Of course, the dishes would never get done, either.

Now we finally have a way to log all those "Pepsi Blue" comments.

Aren't there some dots missing? track.u.lous? tracku.lo.us?

Ugly interface, nice idea.

So it's like Twitter, only organized and pretending that anyone cares?

Is anyone tracking metafilter flameouts yet?

i know what a social accomplishment is, i know what an athletic accomplishment is, but i have absolutely no idea what a social athletic accomplishment is.

It's just an extension of the insidious LOLFATTIES culture that prevails on Metafilter.

I guess the advantage over Excel is the built-in sharing? But Excel is better-designed and has neat stats / math features.

It's an athletic accomplishment you share with friends, which is the whole point of these social-networking athletic tracking sites I linked.

AnnaA seems really into it. I'm not tracking her, though.

I think of these things, and then I think nobody would ever use them, and then they show up here.

I wonder if Count Trackula uses this.

Geez, a good idea, but the interface reeks of 1996 Livejournal.

I think I hate the web now.

I can't wait until my home computer tracks all this shit for me. I can graph sleep against weight, work done against hours of tv watched.
YOUR LIFE ON A GRAPH! COMING SOON!

This sounded like a neat idea, but then it turned out that it sucked. Needs more web 2.0. Also, on the example, the graph is resized so that you can't even read it. That seems like a pretty major flaw on a website that's supposed to be about graphing things.
