Design and Implementation of a Digital Diary


Design and Implementation of a Digital Diary


The act of record-keeping is as old as man and its role cannot be overemphasis, as the human at times needs a form of reminder in performing a task or remembering a schedule or an event. Likewise, in emphasizing or buttressing on the truth or falsity of a particular subject in a given condition.

A digital diary is an automated diary with enables one as a tool to write diaries (periodical events) without writing those stuff on paper. Its strength includes time organization, effort minimization and memories remembrance.

This research work DESIGNED AND IMPLEMENTED OF A DIGITAL DIARY is a window-based system with its front end designed using MS Visual Studio 2008 and MS SQL Management Studio 2005 for its back-end design. This system (the proposed model) fully automates the manual personal diary with additional, advance and advantageous features.

A system, with numerous definitions, can be literally seen in a computer way as a collection of the hardware and software components of a computer.

According to Stella C. Chiemeke and Franca A. Egbokdara (2006), a system is a set of components that interact to achieve a common goal. In another sense, a system is a group of interrelated or intersecting elements forming a unified whole.

In this modern age, computers have verified the cause of their existence. The advent of computers in our society caused a lot of criticism on the danger it poses on the society.

Critics of the computer and new techniques express their fear on how computers will displace and replace all human skills thus resulting to mass unemployment but the presence of computer on virtually every field of today’s fast life has proved the critic wrong as the invention of computers and new technologies continues to create additional jobs for those who identify themselves with computers and new technologies. This make computes partner to human beings in any fields of human endeavour.
