A couple of years ago I used to use StickyBrain for many purposes. I wrote and stored Eudora Tips, kept some passwords, stored various odds and ends of notes, web clippings — all kinds of stuff. One of the advantages was that while I could categorise and classify the notes I didn’t have to.
For some reason I no longer recall I stopped using StickyBrain. Perhaps it became a little slow; perhaps I moved to OS X and it didn’t; perhaps my attention was distracted by some other shiny new software. Whatever happened, StickyBrain has now reached version 3 and I just had to download it and try it out again, and buy the upgrade. It has those nifty contextual menus for grabbing stuff from other applications, or pasting stuff to them. It has the categories of notes, and quick finding, now also from the menu bar. It also now has nifty new tabs and a bunch of other good features. There’s a demo which is fully functional for 30 days, though it’s a 19 MB download. It was grindingly slow when I downloaded but the pressure should be off the servers by now.
