This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
Rafa, Also not free, but something you probably have on your computer: a spreadsheet. Spreadsheets are good for listing tasks and times. I like index-cards and post-its, but they are hard to transmit electronically.
There are some free tools that are more along the lines of what you're looking for though.

You will also want to do some charts, like Burn Down Charts.
Ilja, Yes, but a webcam isn't free. We do take digital camera pictures of the post it notes from project retrospectives and put them on the shared drive. But they are difficult to read and usually end up typing them up afterward anyway.
The Burn Down chart is interesting. I hadn't read too much about Scrum. [ October 30, 2004: Message edited by: Jeanne Boyarsky ]
