One of the most problematic aspects of time tracking is the constant need for adjustments and corrections. It is very common to forget to start or stop tracking at the right time or use the wrong tags.

$ timew untag @1 Prepare Talk
$ timew tag @1 'Prepare Talk'
$ timew lengthen @1 20mins
$ timew shorten @1 PT5M30S
$ timew move @1 8:30am
$ timew split @1
$ timew join @1 @2
