Topic: Databases, was Behmor roasting (30 lines)
1) From: David Schooley
I use a Macintosh database I developed using FileMaker Pro. It lets me  
keep track of the coffee I buy, including all of the descriptive  
information from the SM web site; what I roast, and when and how I  
roast it; and the resulting stash. I can even keep pictures of the  
roasts, both whole bean and ground. (I actually used this feature four  
or five times...) It will also store profiles and let you use those  
profiles when logging a roast, which was helpful when I was still  
using my iRoast.
FileMaker Pro is a bit expensive. You can also get it for Windows, but  
the database might need some tweaks due to the fonts I use.
Anybody who has FMP is welcome to a copy of my database. Please reply  
off-list.
I have considered turning this thing into a standalone Mac  
application. Mac OS X has some pretty decent database capabilities  
built in that would allow me to do some things that I have not managed  
to do with Filemaker.
