We've been using a wiki, to date, but (we're probably just not using it right) it just doesn't have the right feel, and I don't really see a way to munge it so it's more data-centric with all the appropriate back-links I want and all that.

It's been proposed to just move our wiki tables to a spreadsheet, but that doesn't feel right, either. Pretty much the same two dimensional problem.

So I'm thinking I might expand writersplanner.com to support tracking reviews. This is what I'm thinking:

REVIEWER:
name
website
contact name
email address
accepts: e-copy, hardcopy
snail mail address
notes


REVIEW SUBMISSION: links to WORK and REVIEWER
date sent
sent: electronic, print
date review posted
review URL
review quote
review "full"
notes

And if you have suggestions on this or other software platforms to suggest, I'm all eyes. :)

While I'm all for a no more tech than required approach I also feel that MySQL/PHP and 1-2 hundred lines of code is a perfectly good low tech solution to that one. And I think the code estimate may be very liberal.

Part of me screams "generalize the code so other people can use it", while the other part of me screams "nobody else cares". I appreciate the comment.

I'd use more than 200 lines of code, even if just extending writersplanner, but a lot of copypasting of template stuff. ;)

I was thinking 200 just for the PHP MySql, and just for superbasic accept a query, insert the data sort of functionality, including the HTML/CSS or increasing the functionality would definately need morel lines.

as far as general vs. lazy. I almost always find for myself that I'll walk away from something and come back to it in 6 months and forget why I've done certain thins certain ways, or what a variable represents, so I try to be as general as possible all the time, so that I can read the code down the road.
