Introduction

The My Ching software is designed to be a companion application for regular users of the I Ching. The I Ching, or Book of Changes, is an ancient classic and one of the world's most influential books, comparable to the Bible, the Koran, and the Upanishads. Besides being a book of wisdom it is also functions as a divination system, and is commonly used as a decision making tool to get "an outside perspective" on any matter.

Use My Ching to record your daily interactions with the I Ching in a journal, adding your thoughts and comments. Journal pages are elegantly designed and fully theme-able and customize-able. Years or months later with the My Ching search engine you can find specific entries  as easily as googling the web. Use the My Ching hexagram reference to browse the best hexagram translations and commentaries from around the Internet.

We invite you watch a 10 minute video demonstrating the features of this software.

Ten Reasons

Ten reasons to use My Ching to store all your I Ching readings:

1. Web-style search engine

We are all used to using an Internet search engine to find relevant information. Now you can search through your journal readings with something similar. My Ching has a search engine with a clean and simple interface. Beyond simple keyword searches, the engine supports an extensive query notation offering limitless flexibility in the kinds of searches you can do. In a nutshell it combines simplicity with unlimited flexibility.

2. Hexagram Reference

My Ching includes a searchable hexagram reference with links to the best online-resources on the Internet. The same resources can also be accessed by right clicking on any hexagram figure.

3. Visually configurable

The look of the journal pages is highly configurable. Seven built-in themes are provided, to which you can add your own custom themes. Choose from 15 different line styles, 3 different banner images, 3 different footer images, and any fonts and page/border color you prefer.

4. Elegant and uncluttered aesthetic

The journal pages have an elegant uncluttered design with feminine lines i.e. no sharp corners! The integrity of the design is preserved by hiding navigation buttons until the moment you actually need to use them. When you don't need them, you don't see them.

5. Manual and automated casting

My Ching offers a very efficient way of manually inputting the oracle's response, as well as a semi-automated way of casting a hexagram with a significant level of human interaction.

6. Advanced hexagram perspectives

For advanced I Ching users, My Ching allows you include various extra derived hexagram figures for display on each journal page.

7. Secure protection for sensitive information

There are many I Ching journal entries that we would like to keep securely private in a separate "password protected" journal. My Ching supports optional 128 bit AES encryption on all journals.

8. Tabbed Information

My Ching supports page tabbing in a very similar way to modern web browsers. You have the search engine in one tab and each journal page opens in a separate tab. Hexagram web resources and help pages also have their own tabs.

9. Related readings

Easily link related readings together. Navigate to a related reading using the hyper-links at the bottom of the reading journal page.

10. Multilingual support

My Ching was designed from the beginning to be multi-lingual. If you are not from the English speaking world, My Ching will in due course be offered in versions for speakers of German, French, Spanish and Russian.
