Today we will discuss time. Time is an important component of our societal responsibilities. There are so many requirements. Almost all of which have some element of time. It is a maddening fact of life, time controls almost every thing we do.
Most companies require you to be to work at a certain time, and spend a fairly specific amount of time there. Certainly, they would be happier if you spent the time you are there performing the functions expected. However, they will give you a small pass if you do the work expected in the time allotted. Then you are, in some companies, free to pursue other ways to spend your time.
When the time comes you are free to leave. Quitting time, a special time, a magical time. And then,if you are lucky, you have some free time, at least between dinner time and bed time, for some fun. A little time for yourself, or your family. Also known as quality time.
Lately there have been several suggestions for apps to track how I spend my time popping up on my Facebook wall. At first it seemed interesting, until I thought about it. Then I decided no, not only no, but $#@*# No.
So, my advice, skip the efficiency time tracking app, and download Warfare Inc. developed by Spiffcode. A real time strategy game of asset development, management, and allocation, with a good amount of warfare built in to the play.
It is not a button mashing arcade game, closer to a strategic thinking, movement and long term planning.
It is a lot of fun, somewhat challenging, and free. You can't go wrong. I have been playing it for years, and still have not gotten to the end.

More news from the world of Apps,
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
