I like this. It's like RescueTime with more depth. You might want to consider hosting this on URL like freetime.co. This would do well as an iOS + Android app.

@davidjlowe Thanks. I was thinking of dropping it into its own site, but I already have so many URLs at the moment :p If I can think of a way to make the product sticky (instead of just an interesting calculator) then would pursue that.

@erood20 How about asking people what category they want to have more time with and then creating an algorithm that allows them to reclaim that?

@izzydoesizzy The key is to find enjoyment in the 'busy' pockets :) (while minimizing them where you can)

Very interesting, with a very nice visualization of results. One thing to consider is changing the hour counting to daily-based instead of week-based, I had to do unnecessary calculations to present a realistic result. Another thing would be to separate weekdays from weekends, since they probably have very different schedules, and let the code do it's magic of merging both.

@rodrigoom I kept everything weekly as I know there's some variability on the weekends, so wanted to allow folks the ability to account for that by entering a weekly total. Definitely agree splitting things out by weekday vs. weekend (then cutting to daily #) would be a better approach. Thanks for the feedback!
