for a long time I have wanted a mechanical time clock to literally clock in and out for certain parts of my job, so as to enable task/role/project switching. I thought pressing a physical button of some sort (or inserting a card) would make it easier to ‘wear a different hat’, if that makes sense (e.g. now I’m doing research, now I’m prepping for teaching, now I’m having a break looking at Facebook…ahemm or to stick with @MacSparky contextual computing Maker/Manager/Consumer).
I have an old iPhone lying around and I thought after the recent episode with @Tjluoma that it might be possible to do this with the Streamdeck app on the phone? Not quite the same as a nice physical button, but maybe for a start…(and then I can convince myself to buy an actual Streamdeck). Would this be possible? I have no idea what app/script or whatever the stream deck would have to link up with (timing or some such?), perhaps even a txt file that makes a note such as 11:45 Facebook, 12:35 Research Project X, etc…
Any ideas how this might work?
