A "Life Database"

Download Life Database

NEW! Version 4.0.0 - No more duplicate entries in search results!!

While out hiking a few years ago, I thought about how I would have tried to find some information I had recently sought. I have a huge variety of information spread over a wide range of software formats. Finding a summary of what happened on a particular day, or a particular topic would take several different searches in several different places and not produce one overall summary. Thus, the "Life Database" was born!

My criteria:

-No proprietary data formats. Readable by any text reader

-Able to store meta-data as well as simple text entries. I store Statistics too.

-Modules for a variety of categories

-Able to output to a chartable format. For the data.

-Quick data intake. No more than 2 mouse-clicks to input data.

My first attempt

1 category, each function on its own tab

Next Version. Quick Intake form. 1 Mouse-click to start inputting data.
Input your data, hit OK, voila!

The Main Form

Complex Search
