I receive many inquiries about a Timekeeper for the internet.
Because of this interest I started working on a Timekeeper for
the internet. By 2000 I could demonstrate a program which would
provide approximately the same capabilities as the Access Timekeeper.
Since then I have demonstrated this program to 10 to 15 Time Dollar
organizations. I currently have only one user of my Timekeeper
for the internet.
My internet Timekeeper is a Perl program which used a MySQL
database. I know it will run on an Apache server on either a Windows
or Linix system. It will probably run on any server which supports
With this program a Time Dollar organization could maintain
their data on a remote server and perform all necessary operations
over the internet. Since all operations includes things that most
users should not be allowed to do my program provides an extensive
set of user capabilities so limits can be places on each user.
My internet Timekeeper program is not aimed at the average
Time Dollar member. It could be used to provide some limited functions
to that average member but it is really intended to serve the
same people who use the Access Timekeeper. I was thinking of the
director of a Time Dollar organization who could now do after
work on their home computer anything they could do at their office
or the person who would like to do data entry work but can not
go to an office.
Since I have been unsuccessful in turning inquiries into users
my concept of an internet Timekeeper must not correspond to what
most people are thinking. There are now other efforts underway
to provide an internet interface for Time Dollars. I do not know
if my internet Timekeeper has any future.
