  • Since you mention using a Mac, maybe you should have a look at Omni Outliner [].

    I've settled on using it longer than anything else has lasted. I always have it open, so using it is pretty quick.

    But... keeping things organized can be a challenge at times. (Some entries seem to belong under multiple parents, not easy with an outliner)

    However, there is a "new kid" on the block! (er... new to me anyways)

    I just stumbled across TiddlyWiki [] and it is just "damn cool", IMHO.

    I'm considering moving some of my stuff over
    • I own and enjoy using OmniOutliner, but it is not for many quick notes of arbitrary format. I'll look at TiddlyWiki...
    • Keeping things organized can be a challenge at times. (Some entries seem to belong under multiple parents, not easy with an outliner)

      It seems to me like this is in need of tags, as on, and not of a hierarchy.

      See the articles I bookmarked (and tagged :)) on [].
      • That is why I wrote Rubric. It allows you to organize not just bookmarks, but also notes and journal entries and the like. (Also, with minor modifications, images and video.) []

        It's on the CPAN.
        • Not bad, not bad at all. I am a sucker for boolean (mainly AND) combinations of tags, and I found your tool actually offers that power.

          What I'd like a just a little more userfriendly interface to select tags. Say I want to select items with the tags "color" and "tools". Neither of these tags are not on the front page... Entering "color tools" in the search box does not yield the desired selection, as it does a full text search and not a tags search. Or should I see: a full text search but not including the
          • I agree. I've recently started doing some more work on Rubric, and these are things I'd like to fix. The search box, now, only searches description and body, which sucks.

            I have a shortcut so I can type "r foo bar" to go to /rubric/~rjbs/foo+bar which is in turn a shortcut for /rubric/entries/user/rjbs/tags/foo+bar
  • Now I find out that there is no (or is no documented) way to hide an application from AppleScript. (By hide, I mean what happens when you hit Cmd-H.)


    tell application "System Events"
      set visible of process "Stickies" to false
    end tell

    Hope it might help in the future. Not sure if or where it might be documented, though. Unlike the GUI scripting feature, which also uses System Events (and is well documented), it doesn't seem to require "Enable access for assistive devices" to be turned on
