thanks, that's working fine :-)

I already looked into that, but I couldn't find how to track the time
of entries without a DATE property.

I tried that, but when searching for matching tasks I  can't see their
clocked time in this view (when pressing R org tells me that this
operation is not allowed in such a buffer).
What I just tried was to add a DATE property like this:
  DATE: <2009-07-24 Fri>
  DATE: <2009-07-20 Thu>
With this I can see the task in the agenda and see the clocked
time(s), but I have to add an entry every time I'm working on it (and
it's redundant because this information is already in the CLOCK
I haven't used a custom agenda before, is there a way to create one
that shows tasks in a timeline by looking at the dates in the CLOCK

Thanks for your replies, yours too Greg.
