    Hi.

    I take medication[1] every 4 hours.

    They are amphetamines and it's important I take them approx every 4
    hours

    I need to make a note of what time I take it


    Is there a really quick and easy way of doing this? [2]

    If someone who knows how to write software can do this I'll pay them
    for doing so? [3]





    [1] medication is dexedrine for ADHD
    [2] would be great if I didn't have to type in the time - if I could do
    it quickly - .e.g on the bus.. just press a key and the phone
    automatically enters a 'time' stamp.

    [3] I'm a student, I can't really afford to pay more than $20 but there
    may be a big market it. Ofcourse if you make it freeware, I'd be
    delighted!

    Write a script for your system, whatever it may be. For windoze
    you can use a batch (.bat) file, especially if you have 4dos (a
    free download from jpsoft.com). On linux a bash script will do
    nicely.

    All they have to do is add a line to a file, specifying date and
    time. You can arrange various ways of running it.

    Alternatively someone can write a whole program, which is gross
    overkill.

    It's for a mobile phone - the Sony E K750i , not a computer

    Oh. There's probably a computer hidden under that, but I am
    certainly not familiar with it. Good luck. Try
    comp.arch.embedded, where you may well find some of the designers.
    Don't cross post all over again, it will get you ignored.

    A stopwatch. Reset it to zero when you take the stuff. Lots of digital
    watches have such a feature built-in. Many of them also have a timer
    you can set to go off after 4 hours, or if you like every four hours.

    My doctor needs a list of times that I took the drug. (monitoring side
    effects such as insomnia)

    My phone has a countdown timer - I can set it to reset every 4 hours

    Considering further, a suitable device could probably be built out
    of a cheap PIC, a battery, and a pushbutton. In any volume it
    could go for something in the twenty dollar area. It could be
    unloaded via an RS232 port, or SPI, etc. Take your meds, push the
    button. Once daily (or weekly, etc) unload it somewhere.

    I am capable of tackling such, but not willing. Once again, try
    comp.arch.embedded. There could be a buck in it for someone.
    Needs a few interlocks, against multiple button pushes, for
    example.

    I took a few min. and look out on source forge. I found this java
    program. In one of your other notes you said that you wanted to run on
    a phone. I've not done it but a lot of phone can held java.

    The project is in the planning stages, so they haven't actually released
    any software yet. Also, it looks like this is for J2SE (Java 2 Standard
    Edition), which means it probably won't run on cellphones (which only have
    J2ME, Java 2 Micro Edition). J2SE is intended for desktop usage, and
    requires something like a 100 meg download, which most phones can't afford.

    I think the JDK is between 60 and 80 Mo (my phone can afford it), and he
    only needs the JRE. It's about 7 Mo, I think.

    When I right click on properties for my "C:\Program
    Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06" folder, it tells me 70.5MB.
