I have a terrible memory. I’d like a simple timeline application that I could use to remind myself when things happened. It’s basically a calendar except in reverse. I can’t remember when I moved last, changed jobs, changed the oil, finished my graduate degree, etc. Most of those things aren’t that important, but invariably I have some information I’d like to know (like how long have I been living in Oregon). It would be nice to have a way of retrieving that information quickly.

The process I usually use is to call my wife and ask her. That works fairly well, but I don’t think she would mind if I outsourced this particular part of her job :).
