Looking for Personnel Management Software Solution?

I'm trying to find a software solution for a non-enterprise task. Basically I want a person-profile (contacts) management software where I can put address-book stuff, but I also want to be able to add notes and other things about the individual contacts, as well as images, and attached files (say, like a pdf about their company).

I've looked into a few possibilities, like FileMaker, the database software, but they seem very cumbersome, and have a lot of features I'm not interested in.

I've been thinking that a personal Wiki might be the best option, though my problem with those is that the editing methods are rather slow (i.e. if I want to add a picture, for instance), AND, the formatting has to be performed by hand.

Does anyone know of any such software where basically, I can give a "contact" their own "page/tab" and on that page/tab can dump any files, text, images, etc. that are related to them?

(Kind of like a personally annotated version of Facebook even?)

Thanks!

Thanks for the links! Definitely on the right track - Probably the closest I found (one of my problems with some of this software is the really antiquated UI design), is TribeHR, <http://tribehr.com/&gt;

It's fairly simple, and allows a tabbed interface profile for each contact, including the important ability to attach files to a contact's page, and photos.

It does however, come with some monthly subscription costs, and even so, isn't nearly as flexible as I'd expect it to be (the dropdown menus don't seem modifiable, for instance).

Seeing all this, I'm not wondering how much of an effort it would be to just write a simple flat-file solution myself (not using databases), which would have similar functionality? I imagine it's a lot more work than I'm thinking though...
