Benefits over online diaries
The StarMessage Diary has clear benefits over the online diaries. An online diary cannot guaranty the privacy of your personal data. You can never be sure that the company offering the service will always be in business in the years to come. Your data might be lost after a hacker attack to the online server.
The StarMessage Diary stores your data locally, so they cannot get into unknown hands. The state of the art encryption protects them from non authorized eyes. Since the program stays in your computer you are not affected by any change in the company that created the software.

Save time
Review your past entries easily! The journal makes reviewing your previous entries as simple as looking at a calendar. Check out yesterday, or skim to last month, or see an entry from years ago with no more effort than a mouse click or a keystroke.

Use it as a planner
You can use the diary also as a planner for your future tasks. You can Plan days in the future....
Leave "future notes" to yourself! The StarMessage diary allows an entry to be placed on any date: past, present or future!

Picture support in the diary?

Folks,

Must have looked at every diary software around on the Net and yours is by far the best for my purposes. Particularly like the clean presentation lines and ease of use. The reason I was searching for so long was to find something as good as yours with the ability to insert or cut/paste an image. Any plans for you to offer that in the future.

Regards

John F.

Response from the StarMessage Diary team:

Due to encryption and compression of the diary, it cannot support inline images i.e pictures directly pasted to the content.

We are planning to include ONE side-image per entry which will be encrypted but not compressed. You will see a thumbnail of this image side-by-side with the content (clicking the image will display the full size original picture).

moving the diary file from one computer to another

I need a bit of help. I originally installed the Diary at my winter home and started a diary. I have just moved back north and want to install on my home computer and continue to add to the already established diary. I have backup of the already started diary on a disk. How do I proceed?
I use StarMessage diary version 3.0

Response from the StarMessage Diary team

The next version of the diary (3.1) will have an easier
method for restoring a diary to another computer.

For the current version (3.0) you should...

1) Install the diary program to your new computer

2) Create a new EMPTY diary with the SAME PASSWORD as your backed up diary. It is very important to use the same password you used on your backed-up one!

3) Inside the diary, click [TOOLS]

4) Click [Backup/Restore] -> [Restore from file]

5) Select the backup file from your disk/usb and open it

That's it. Your new diary will be filled with the entire information contained in the old one.

If the diary passwords don't match, the diary will not be recoverred.

The Starmessage diary is awsome! Thanks!

I've been searching online for something like this for a long time!! It's perfect and easy to use. Thanks!

I love the concept and format of the program.

StarMessage Diary is the perfect accompaniment to a personal computer. I love the concept and format of the program. No longer do I feel as if i must jot down incidental notes on the large screen and program of word processor (which we all know makes big files with hardly anything in them, let alone how such wordprocessor files are stored on the disk)...The starmessage diary is an aesthetically appealing and pragmatic application. So far, not being confronted with the monstrocity of a big WordProcessor, I've been able to make some truly good writing on the spur of the moment. And the StarMessage Diary is always available and handy. You've fulfilled a need and it is very useful, enjoyable and gives a person a personal sense of what "diary's" are about.

Thank you ...

Sincerely,
Michael

If you are a user of online diaries like my diary

you might prefer to switch to this diary which is more safe as it stays on your computer, more elegant and strongly protected by password.
