How about something like this:

An app with a tray icon. Right-click the tray icon for "new note" or "see past notes" or "search past notes".
You select "new note", an edit box comes up where you type and submit, and the text gets saved.
You select "see past notes" and the past notes get presented (not sure how yet).
You select "search past notes" and a dialog comes up, so that you can type search expression. You press enter and notes are displayed.

other suggestions :

Post It Digital Note (can't remember all the details about this one, but it's cute...): http://www.3m.com/us..._notes_features.html

I can't help but ask if you really tried Quicknote (free, MUCH more simple than ACEtext, and works with a hotkey): http://www.quicknote.de/
Can't be much simpler than that...

Often you do not need an advanced text processor but a virtual scrapbook to quickly write down an occasional thought, a plan for the day or an Internet URL. With a plain text editor, which can be used for this purpose, you have to run the program first, then create a new file, then type a line or two and save the file. Too many things to do in order to simply write down a thought? With Quicknote, it does not matter which programs you are currently using; whenever you want to write something down that comes to mind, just 'wake up' Quicknote by touching a small line on the top of your screen with the mouse or by pressing shortcut keys. In its resizable window you can jot down your notes and organize them in categories or even sketch small drawings.
Still, this tiny tool has more possibilities than it seems on the first thought! Beneath the normal text functions, it can convert units, let you directly access frequently run programs, encrypt secret texts, change the system volume by hotkeys, manage windows tasks, and even send notes through a network. It has also a powerful reminding tool, which can remind you of your notes at certain times, run programs or shutdown automatically your PC. The program is absolutely free, so download this handy tool today and concentrate on content rather than form.

- Probably too complex :

Thanks again guys,

I'm going to give ExplorerNotes2 and Quicknote another push and see what happens.

Don't hold your breath though, if I pester too much I'll end up with 'picture but no sound' for a night or two and I really don't fancy that.  ;)
