An easy to use journal/diary application. Features include: Multiple journals, Private entries, Guest mode access to public entries, Built-in database (hSQL), Supports MySQL, Easy installation, Available for Windows, Mac, Linux, etc
Maintains a database of entries in a journal-like format. The user can add, edit, and delete entries. Each entry is timestamped. Easy navigation through the entries is provided. I wrote this for my personal use but decided that I would make it open source so others could benefit by it. I had been using Microsoft Access as a journal and it met all of my functional needs. However, it was not cross platform so I could not use it on my Linux box. Also, I have been trying to break my dependencies on closed source, proprietary software. Thus, PowerJournal was born.

Quality software isn't developed overnight. It is grown. Part of that growth process involves feedback from users. Open source software depends on this feedback as a vital tool to help make the software as rich and usable as possible. Support PowerJournal by giving feedback - whether positive or negative. There are both mailing lists and forums set up for PowerJournal users and developers to participate in. They can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/powerjournal/
