How are you keeping track of your levels?

Are you using software or a calendar by the tank?

I have been keeping track on my blackberry in my task bar but I think I'd maybe like to have software. Can anyone recommend a program?

excel... i made a spreadsheet to keep track of mine. I made a column for the date... then i made one for Ammonia, NitrIte, NitrAte, pH, temp, pwc, and which filter i cleaned. I only do this on my 150, but im thinking i should probably do this on my others too...

Another one for Excel. Parameters in columns, date in rows. Another worksheet in the same spreadsheet keeps track of my stored saltwater "inventory", logging in water coming in and going out.
