TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
http://www.serena.com/products/openproj/ is an open source project planner.
It's a Java program, so it's multiplatform. You can set working days and
hours as in Project, and allocate hours by percentage, i.e., 50% of an 8
hour day is tracked as 4 hours. I don't know whether you can manually tweak
the percentages by the day in real-time, though.
