    5 Stars

    "Keeping a builder's log in a paper note book over the years has been tedious. Now that I have a digital camera, a computer with Internet connections and the ExperCraft data logging program, record keeping has become a fun task. I enjoy logging information that I can easily find and just may help other builders to not make some construction errors. Perhaps I may be able to encourage other builders also. I certainly wish I had this automated record keeping and references early on in my KR-2 construction."
