More Daybook

Responding to but she's a girl, Jack Baty describes his own daybook, also kept with Tinderbox. Baty keeps a separate container for each day, inside a monthly container, and ties everything to an online, collaborative issue-tracking system. Tinderbox handles the overhead of keeping it all organized by automatically naming the containers and assigning prototypes.

There’s also a screencast.

I’ve been doing this since the beginning of this year and have a total of 1235 entries so far with no apparent impact on Tinderbox’s performance. My Tinderbox Daybook has become a surprisingly valuable resource. It’s amazing how much information is available over time simply by recording minor events each day. I haven’t started mining this information in any formal way yet. Who knows what I’ll find!
