Hi Bill! My name is Mike.
I'm working on an open source web-based system for recordkeeping and bookkeeping geared towards farmers. It's still in the early stages, but I'm excited about it and I think it has a lot of potential.
The basic idea is that it will be a web-based interface for doing the same things that your spreadsheets are doing. So instead of having a flat set of sheets for different purposes, it can have a more flexible hierarchy and user interface, including a section dedicated to auto-generated reports. Underneath all the covers, though, it is essentially the same thing... except instead of storing data in spreadsheets it's storing it in database tables (same idea, rows and columns, and relationships between different sheets/tables).
I was curious if you'd like to have a brainstorm session sometime, and discuss possible collaborations. Your spreadsheets are an excellent start for data collection and reporting! I would love to add a layer of web-based UI on top! I think it could be really cool.
(I think the personal contact forms on this site aren't working at the moment - I just notified R.J. and he's looking into it - so in the meantime send me a message from http://farmier.com and I'll get back to you via email!)
