Note Taking Software

  • As Ubuntu user, I have Tomboy as the best integrated note taking software solution, but though I'm a big paper hater and merely read anything else but e-books for studies, I'm still using real "post-it"s, instead of digital replacements :D

  • like you said, I also read a lot of e-books and i need to have something to organize all of summaries of them. I recently discovered cross platform single file note taking software. That is tiddlywiki, can you use and send your review please?

  • I use post-it because the ones on my computer can only be viewed when my computer is on :).
    Actually, I think paper post-its have more power in getting thinks noted done.

    Actually this is another subject, GTD.


    I am looking for something which can store my e-book summaries etc. Recently i heard that even lastpass has xss vulnerability, i wouldn't recommend anything which store your notes online and i am not going to use one of them.


    I decide to use simple .txt files or for better formating an .odp or .doc document. Then i will store them in my hdd and i bind that folder to my toolbox on windows.

  • I have to places for notes:


    1.) A repository on my svn server, where i store those notes as .txt files or whatever i need. has the nice advantage, that i can see the changes, and see, what was done when and so on ^^


    2.) Post-Its on my monitor. Really, they are great ;)

  • I have a Woltlab forum silence that I use just for my notes. It's closed in and no one has access to it.
    The same thing can be accomplished by designating a hidden forum on your public forum board since I assume everyone here owns at least one.
    For quick notes I'm still a fan of NOTEPAD, old habits die hard! ;)


    I also use blogspot quite a bit when I'm in the mood to write or copy paragraphs from online content for further review.
    Blogs can be set to private. If I start a new subject I open a new blog that can be discarded later.

    Yes, thats also an option. I do have an hidden subboard on my board, and the "Mark as done" function is pretty cool ;) You can easily keep track of things you have alreyd done and things, that still need to be done xD
