It's a diary your little brother can't steal.

In an age when everyone posts their innermost feelings on the Web to be seen by friends, ex-lovers, and future employers, there are still those who want to keep private feelings private, but nonetheless record them. DiaryOne is a program to make it easy to do just that, allowing you to create offline diaries, password-protect them, and even (if you wish) upload some or part of them to Windows LiveSpace (no other blogging sites are supported as of this writing).

DiaryOne is a very simple piece of software, without a lot of bells and whistles, making it easy to just use to, well, write a diary entry. Entries go by date, of course, and each day can have multiple entries. Each entry can include normal text (with all the usual options for font, color, bold or italic, and so on), pictures, emoticons, embedded flash video, and even a soundtrack.

Beyond that, there's not much to say. You open the program, use the default diary or create a new one (you can have as many diary files as you wish), make your entries, and that's that. It's hard to find any fault with the fact it sets out to do one job and does it as well as can be expected. If private diary-keeping is what you need, download this one and try it out.
