    Even though the systems I have set up are not that complicated, I find that I often forget what I did when I set up a post or update or whatever. It often takes me many minutes to figure out what and why I had in mind. Is there a good book or article that talks about keeping a record to refer back to? Thanks Ed

    Not sure if this answers your question, but I use "Effecient Notes" to keep track of my notes. It is also my personal User Guide, Code Archive and Project Notes. I used to use Word, but this is more structured. See image below.

    I use a similar program called Action Outline, but my problem is that I either put in too much detail, or the material is so disorganized as to be useless, or I leave out the crucial details.

    I used to code in DbaseII, and I would just put notes in the margins, but now I hardly write any code at all. I just use all the forms and genies, so there is no clear way of knowing what happens. Ed
