Scott you may very well be able to do what you are thinking using mindmapping software such as FreeMind. I think that the support for pictures in nodes is rather primative but it might just work for your application.
Mindmapping is bit more free form than using something like a flat list or Excel
spreadsheet. What is very nice is the ability to create a hierarchy and to hide information at lower levels so it can be very useful for outlining presentations etc. I often use it in place of a flat list.
FreeMind is an open source project so the software can be downloaded and used freely.
It is written in Java so it will run on practically any platform. You may find that some of the
commercial MindMapping Software may suite you particular application better but I would
suggest that you start with FreeMind to get your head around the ideas and see if you
P.S. Just google "FreeMind" or "MindMapping" .
Ok, I admit I am a bit OCD, but I am in the process of designing my new shack in an unfinished part of my basement. I was looking for a easy way to capture my designs, mods, equipment lists, manuals, cabling, pictures, maybe articles that I am referencing, etc. Currently I am putting everything in a file cabinet, but would like to use some sort of electronic means. Anyone tackle documenting their shack in such a way? My crazy idea was a picture of the setup that I could click on the rig and up would come the manual and a wiring diagram for the cables. Click on an antenna lead and see the type, test results and age of cable, etc.
