Your idea would involve at least two terms of service breaches  
involving the protection of residents. Chat logging, for example, is  
steictly forbidden.
Also, if you'd like a suggestion when making requests for information,  
try to be more precise. When you say that you want to know how much  
time was spent doing an activity, you fail to specify which activities  
you wish to measure. If you want to measure how much time is spent  
building, that's a different matter.

My suggestion would be to talk to Linden Labs.
