Ah - confession time!  No, not that I keep a daily list, but I used to do that, 
and still should!  It's just that I'm a bit slack - and rather busy doing other 
things - and OK, just hopelessly disorganised!

Not for me, though, the meticulously maintained notebooks - all my sightings go 
into all sorts of stray notebooks, and from there into Excel spreadsheets.  
I've toyed with various databases but keep going back to Excel - at least I 
know how that works!  I'm happy to share my experiences with various forms of 
record keeping or data structures with other readers (reason #1 I'm sending 
this reply to the list).

I'm also enjoying Sean's book thoroughly when I can grab a few minutes to read 
each chapter. There's reason #2 - a wholehearted product endorsement!!!
