Fun with Wakoopa!

So, today at work, I went over to Wakoopa.com , which is this social application tracking site.  What you do is install the Wakoopa tracker, and it uploads how many hours you use each application.  So, while bored out of my mind at work today, I decided to see how much I can level up my character (yea, you have levels...)

So, I started by installing the client, then I opened every application on the computer.  At 5 points each, that boosted my to almost 200 points... then I realized that it tracked web apps too... like gmail, google reader, google calendar, etc... so I started opening up all the sites I usually go to.  then I got up to about 250.  After that, I started to add comments to all the applications that I have had open all day... writing reviews for all of them.  it's kinda cool...

So anyway... I've made it from Newbie, to Novice, to Enthusiast, and now I'm stuck at Devotee... which has this Zen Buddhist type of icon...  However, I want to be a pro or overlord...

grr... if the program worked with Linux too, then I would level up much faster.

I guess I'll just have to keep looking for new web apps.

Later,

PS. I added the Wakoopa applet to my side bar.  Check it out!
