Continuing the discussion from Referral schemes?:
I have 228 finished tasks at the moment! I'm definitely planning to calculate my estimate correctness factor someday. They were a major factor in starting to use TagTime, since they are perfectly suited as spolsky estimates! Perhaps I'll start myself a goal to work on this in August .
But I can't use the automatic timers directly to calculate the factor, since I usually start multiple goals at once. Often the timer runs to multiple days for goals with estimates of a only handful of minutes. I also have some super-goals with long-term estimates, collecting a bunch of other tasks. I will have to calculate the expected number of pings versus real pings for each task. I've also been prefixing abandoned tasks with "ABD: " when I mark them as finished. I had a reason for not deleting them outright, but can't think of it ATM.
I will update this thread when I've made any progress or when I have more concrete ideas of how to go about this. I don't think the script folder contains anything doing something similar?
Anyone else using the task editor?
PS: I also use the "non" tag, but I haven't really looked yet at what the intended use was for the "nonXX" tag (with XX day of month?). Can you shed a light?
