I see you have categories, does this mean I can use it to track multiple things? Like oil change records and tool purchase/warranty information?

Hmm I wonder, is there a way to modify this to be sort of like a check book/to do list for a subgame? perhaps a check box per entry or an auto detect api?

That's what I want it to be like.
But with story instead of checkboxes.

More like one for each mod or one for each or one for each piece of story.

2 things how would I add a trigger for testing if the player mines a block which a certain tool in hand?
and a trigger where the player right clicks with an item, punches a certain block with a certain item, or right clicks a certain block with a certain item
and a trigger were the player picks up a certain item

done that

this would require a change in minetest since there are no register_on_rightclick or register_on_pickup functions

perhaps a item drop/pickup mod would have an on_pickup function?

The data has a New tool field that shows you what the player wielded. And the trigger for punching is called "punchnode".

Could you please take a look at the feature request for those triggers?

This is awesome!

But I have a problem: The journal starts on day 1497919497... what can I do about that?
