Well, my family is preparing a stock of survival supplies (Dehydrated/Freeze-Dried Food, drink powders, etc.), and I am going to be building a database application that can store the details on the items.
 
Why not use Access or Excel?
 
I want to be able to let my... technologically challenged mom enter the data as well. She knows nothing about Access or Excel (and doesn't even have them on her computer!)
 
The application will use a remote database, but I might set it up to be able to use a local database as well.
 
And a question: Would you guys like me to release the application online? Would you like me to write an article about it? (e.g The data access stuff, UI design, custom controls, etc.)
 
EDIT:
 
And to everyone: We will be keeping up-to-date hard copies of the data, the digital database is just for ease of access BEFORE an emergency. That is all. I will likely add a report generator system to create and print the lists.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
