I want to record (by typing or hot key) the frequency of an event (ie when one smiles, hears their favorite song, sits down/stands up/whatever), and ultimately be able to analyze the data by ranges of time (ie by day, hour, week, w/e). Think of it as a powerful counter. Any programs you can suggest for this?

I would prefer OSX compatible, or online trackers

NOTES**

WhatPulse is close, but I can't seem to track the timestamp of the key pressing

An easy way to save the timestamps would be to assign a shortcut to a script like this:

date '+%F %T' >> ~/Documents/log.txt

I don't know how to analyze the data though.

Microsoft Excel is good for doing analysis, and I presume its open source analogs are comparable.
