HotCocoa App to Track Time on Tasks

Just wrote a HotCocoa/MacRuby OS X app called Hourz to track time on tasks. HotCocoa and MacRuby are both pretty awesome, and the Cocoa framework obviously is even more-so. I was able to get a quick application up and running quickly and of course make a neat little icon to show up in the dock.

That said, I did run into some issues. However, it is what you expect when learning a new framework and a new language that are both relatively new also. However, I expect if there is continued effort in both MacRuby and HotCocoa development, it might become a great way to write OS X applications quickly even for someone not familiar with Cocoa.
