Responding to Mr/Ms Anonymous:
While I admit I'm baffled by some of Mr/Ms A's objections, I hope to provide a cogent response. First, the large download size... it *is* large, but the coding is not RealBasic. The underlying database engine is FileMaker Pro, with several add-ons permitting the charting, encryption, extensive contextual help systems, and (hopefully) pleasing graphics. With a common 512Kbps DSL connection, the download time is less than 8 minutes. Not lightning, but not too excruciating. Users with 56K dial-up connections can email me for a free CD.
Windows and Mac installers are provided separately, although the data files *are* cross-platform compatible (if your platform tastes change). That does not add to the download size.
I believe the obsessive-compulsive assessment is subjective. We subscribe to Socrates' quote that "An unexamined life is not worth living." Plus, there are many uses for wanting to recall the significant events in one's life. Check out http://www.livingtime.com for a top-ten list.
And lastly, regarding the price: Our MacUpdate.com description has been abbreviated by their editors. There are many other synergistic advantages of the various features, but one significant omission is that we include access to thousands of public events. So one can see what else was happening in the world during the private events of one's life. There is too much more to describe here, so I hope you'll check out our product page: http://www.livingtime.com.
