I guess this is classed as brewing equipment....I have some computer programming experience, and wrote a little program to keep track of all my brews, beats keeping a diary! So if you're computer savvy and would like to try it let me know! Otherwise I'd like to know how you go about logging your brews?

I'd be interested....
I am noticing I have the same problems. I made a little worksheet out of a word doc but no "program" like you computer whizzes know how to do!

[email protected] if you want to send it!

Thanks!

I would be interested in checking it out. Currently I keep a log book but always looking for another way.
What language is the program written in?

Sure, I'll try it! I keep a record book too. Just jot down ingredients, activity, etc. [email protected].

Thanks Roy Boy!
Cheers!

I'd definitely be interested. What kind of info is kept in this program??

Wow Roy Boy!

I got the program, had to do a quick download of a .OCX file but I got it to work no problems!
Sweet little gem you got here, its going to work great.
I'm going to put some info it and really use the program and I'll let you know what I think maybe could be added or whatever.

One thing right off the bat--
when I click "Search for a brew" I get a runtime error. Its looking for a smartviewpoint.ocx file. I tried finding it on the web but no luck. One site, www.active-x.com supposedly has it but I can't download it--all I get is pop-ups. So I can't use that function, the rest is cool though!

Do you want me to post stuff about it here or send you individual e-mails?

This thing has got serious potential!

Right now I use SUDS, which has been around forever, You can Google it. Thanks for the effort! Maybe one of the mods can post your files here or you can attach them to the thread? Cheers!
