I've started some trials with TiddlyWiki to keep track of project information. Not so much for the time planning/regsitration and such, but due to my setup (multi-boot) I tend to not have access to my email when I'm booted into Windows.

So by placing a wiki (1 self-contained HTML file) in every project directory I can easily keep track of all the notes I take during the process, as well as any client communication.

I just installed a basecamp-a-like on my webserver, and I can just it for notes, files, tasks etc - and including client communication. Have any of you tried remember the milk? I really love it - extremely easy to use - but it only does tasks...

I've played with TiddlyWiki before but never thought of it for this purpose. I've been considering different options for getting organized in my new job. This is a great idea Hans.

I've tried Basecamphq but only as a user - not as an admin. I really think it's good in managing projects since it is easy to understand and use. The list of software from the link you gave are not really in order right? You can check this one though: http://www.timedocto...re-alternatives It's a list of project management software based on Alexa Rankings.

My team uses Latitude. It's a desktop project management software package which will run faster and has better functionality over web-based. It can manage projects, clients, documents and files, and run reports of timesheets and invoices.
