keeping track . . Hmmmm
notebook, spiral notebook, loose leaf, I like 8 x 11 size, plenty or room
the date, what "detail" , speakers, speaker /sub combo I'm chasing / testing / comparing
I know that always thinking you need to be repeating all data entry into each sweep is a PITA (insert Charlie Brown AARRRRRGGGHH!-here)
but you ( should) make only 1 change at a time, so record the change and maybe how it was better, or not
and you do save your REW sessions , bad and good alike- edit out the crap later, tho not usually needed
a dedicated thumb drive -stuff doesn't get "lost"
the hand written version , like a back-up , of changes and results / extra notes gave me something to more easily go back and forth wrt to evaluation
without needing to fire up the computer and necessary set-up for review of the work
portable, like a book- what a concept . . .
but we do love out technology and the visuals-agreed!
at over 70 y.o., maybe it has to do with the instilled / necessary discipline and grit to get through college with 'only' a typewriter and a slide-rule.

(as an aside, to too many kids and young adults, in this day and age, - No-I don't yell get off my lawn,
I'm inclined to feel sad- bigly sad- and think: put the cellphone away and grow a pair).
and no.I'm and equal opportunity "fail at your own speed kinda guy"
It's part of liking the DIY aspect of "this". and I've read all the old Tom Swift books, too . . and have the set, 60 years later
I repeat a line from Peter Dinklage, from a vid on youtube: "Fail BETTER!
