What better way to spend a lazy Sunday morning than setting another blog entry free to float away on the ocean of guff that is the internet…
Being a chap with a rubbish memory, I’m always on the lookout for places to make notes. Friends will be familiar with my fetish for notebooks. Actually, as I type this, if I look to my immediate left I see this:
That’s three notebooks (all in use), a shed load of post-its and some A4 sheets with random notes on. As you can imagine, despite taking lots of notes I can rarely find what I need when I need it. On my Mac, I use the very funky Voodoo Pad. So funky in fact, that I paid for the whizzy version. It acts as a Wiki-in-an-application, allowing notes to be taken (along with pictures etc) and all linked together exactly like a Wiki. I love it.
But, seeing as I spend my working days in the world of C# on a Windows machine, I can’t use Voodoo Pad, and having spent ages looking for a decent Windows application that works as well, I’d finally given up. (I even started using Microsoft OneNote to jot things down in. The horror) Then, I stumble upon this piece of software genius:
Put in on a USB drive (like the super cool one I bought a while back) and you have a Wiki on a stick! I guess it’s nearest rival is TidiWiki, but whereas TidiWiki seems to do it’s own thing regarding the UI, this one acts like the standard MediaWiki and I find it way more user friendly. So there you have it, a great solution to add to my growing list of ‘solutions’… Now, if I could only remember where I make a note of that important thing….
