.....However, notwithstanding my clumsy "scribbling on scrap paper" system,.....

A lot of investing really has more to do with psychology, than accounting.

It could be that not having a sophisticated portfolio tracking system works well for you and that getting some super duper system were you can check your portfolio five times a day will cause you to make bad choices when the stock market periodically goes crazy like it does from time to time. For some people just checking and rebalancing their portfolio a couple of times a year is a good way to go.
