Tracking what I'm doing

Week to view diaryI've traditionally used a paper diary to record my daily work activities. At our team meetings, I then use this to report what I've been doing in the last week.

I leave the diary on my desk at work, so one problem is when I work at home, I need to try and remember the next day what I did.

I considered another blog for this purpose, but all I need is somewhere private that I can record short notes. Even better if they get timestamped.

The two possible candidates that I'm trialling are Google Notebook and Twitter.

Twitter kind of makes sense, except that I generally don't want these notes to be public, so if it isn't possible to keep them private then Notebook will probably win out.

We'll see if I prefer online to offline, but at least my typing is easier to read (and faster to enter) than my handwriting :-)

I use saasu.com activities for this (since it is open anyway for intra day transactions) and there is a neat little capture widget in the top right of every window.

Cheers, Pete.
