    For those of you who have employees and also have computerized time cards where they punch in when they start and punch out when they leave, you probably know the frustration that occurs every payday when you, as an employer, have to sit down every payday and figure out what the exact hours are for each day.

    that is, you understand what a PITA it is to figure out someone's exact hours when their timecard looks like this;

    Mon 7:23 am 4:44 pm
    Tue 7:19 am 6:51 pm
    Wed 7:35 am 4:13 pm
    Thu 7:30 am 7:08 pm


    It gets REALLY tiring calculating those exact minutes and converting them from minutes to decimal hours every single day. That gets a little old after about the first 5 employees.

    Of course, if you're like me, you realize that you were stupid for buying the $200 timecard machine that just punches the time in and you realize that you should have spend the extra $250 on the neat little machine that swiped everyone's "credit-card" style time card and just totalled everyone's exact hours for you. But it's a little too late to return it. So you're stuck, like me, converting all these hours to decimals - every single payday!

    Well, I found a killer little computer program that does all of this for you. It takes a few minutes to really learn how to use it correctly. You have to have all the settings set correctly. But once you learn that, it sure saves you a buttload of time.

    Here's the program;
