The rest of the system is built upon events. Every event is registered with a free text, a date and perhaps a mileage. And it can have a price and even a number of pictures. For repair-events you can also add an unlimited number of lines describing spare parts used for that repair. Some event will have special fields like a fuelling event that will contain the number of litres or gallons etc.

At the time of typing there are 10 different type of events :

For the technical minded :

 

The system is coded towards Microsofts .net platform. Data is NOT saved in a database or closed file-format. This mean that you are NOT lost, if you will look at the data in another way. Data is saved in the open XML-format and can be opened in a ordinary Browser or even from a common office-package like Microsofts Word. In this way it will be possible for other people to build reporting tools, which can produce smart reports on top of these vehicles data, should this program become popular. Everything is possible when data are OPEN !!
