I have been tracking progress to date on the 801 in a spreadsheet. Now that the building is underway and more regular I wanted to get something more official. What do you guys use and reccomend? I was looking at KitLog pro as an option but I was wondering what else might be out there and in use. http://www.kitlog.com/
I have been using KitLog Pro and like it. Unfortunately, the Windows 2016 Anniversary upgrade which Microsoft is forcing on Windows 10 users breaks it. Had to restore back to previous version of Windows to get it working, but Microsoft keeps reinstalling the upgrade the next day. I have email in to Matronics for Kitlog support, but no answer so far.
I think I have a workaround. I'm connected to my router using a wireless connection. Changing the properties of the connection to indicate it is metered seems to be preventing Windows from automatically updating to the Anniversary edition. Just have to make sure I don't connect via wired or to another wireless network without changing the setting.
I'm building a Cruzer, so there are a LOT of non-existent assembly guides. Thank goodness for the Jon Croke DVDs. I really like the idea of having an integrated application that can produce reports and publish to the web (which serves as a backup if necessary) so others can learn from my screw-ups and see more of what is involved before buying. I'm surprised nobody has come out with a comparable competing product.
After the first year I decided/found that the Kitlog Pro database entry process was to cumbersome / tedious / time consuming after working on the project to discipline myself to do so. Kept all receipts (YIKES!) , show some progress on this site, thousands of photos on my laptop with time/date stamp and now keep a paper notebook with entries of progress, hours, date with comments. Pretty fast and easy to do in the workshop the old fashioned way. Throw in a big box, give to inspector as required. Anyway, that my plan!
