Hello!!

So I wasn't really sure where to post this, but I'll try here..

I often come across an article in a magazine (often this mpc) that I know I will want to refer back to at some point, but it's super hard to remember where and in which issue each article is!

Anyone know of some kind of software that allows me to manually enter a description for the article, and then where to find it? So I can search and find exactly where it is?

Thanks a ton :)

-Shaun Z.

Make a database in SQL.
It might be hard, but I guarantee it will work once you get it running.

I'm not sure why you couldn't just enter it into a spreadsheet...or easier yet...post it in a wiki and let people add stuff for you..

Well that was originally what I was thinking, but I'm not very good with SQL yet...I can do a little.. I was hoping there would be something super simple already made for me haha. Nothing special. I also considered making a little program using Visual Studio, but it's been a while since I've used that also. Thanks a lot though! :)

I would also just create a database. If you want simple there is MS Access or real simple and free Open Office Base would work.

Yes, though if you use SQL, you will get exactly what you want and get marketable experience too.
