In search of ... a lost note app
« on: August 09, 2011, 08:57:17 PM »
This is embarrassing :-[.  This past weekend, I hosted a small patio party - beer, wine, grill - the usual weekend stuff.  The family that was over has - that very nearly became had! - a young son, prolly approaching twelve (12) years.  He has reinforced my belief in the bunghole theory (When a child reaches three (3), you place said child in a barrel, feeding through the bunghole - when said child turns eighteen (18), you drive in the bung!).

Anyway, the little ... darling  >:( ... decided to play in the computer room.  I've managed to correct most all that he did - I think! - but one thing I cannot recover.  'Twas prior to my weekly full backup, unfortunately.

There was/is a note-taking app that produces a small bar, 'bout the size of an em dash on the screen.  When you mouse over it, it pops up a note window, dual pane, with the left pane holding an outline-ish structure and the right pane holding notes related to the selected left pane item.  I don't remember the name of it.  I has several Windows keys that I now need to recover, or I'm toast.  If it helps, the note window had a kinda, sorta purple background. 

As mentioned, this is embarrassing :-[.  Does anyone happen to know the name of this little beastie?  The data file is still extant - I had better sense than to restore - and recoverable if I can just figure out what app to reload.  It still is on the NAS, but w/o a name I'll play Hell finding it out of several thousand files.  (I've got to find a decent tagging system.)

P.S. I hate meddling, undisciplined children!

What's the extension of the data file?  That might help to locate the program.

PS: Why didn't you lock the room, or barring that your computers?  Doesn't excuse his actions (or the parents' who are more at fault IMO), but it would have prevented it...

This doesn't match your description exactly but is Notes Holder even close? Trying to remember something similar because I may know what you are talking about.

Hi barney,

Do not worry. It is JC&MB Quicknote http://www.quicknote.de/
One of the first few apps which I load in a new/formatted machine  :)

BTW let kids be kids. They get less time to be themselves nowadays.

Regards,

Anand

Where does QuickNote store user's notes?  It appears to have a very small memory footprint  :up:

'Preciate the quick - and accurate  :up: - response.  Unfortunately, my time got preempted, so I just got back to this  :(.  Actually I did finally find it - after three (3) or four (4) days <groan />, but I'd have got it much more quickly had I been able to get back to non-emergency stuff here.

It's not my favorite note app of all time - don't think I've found that one yet  :P - but it's just too damned handy not to have available  ;).

Thanks much for the information  :Thmbsup:.

I use 'Quicknote' for few most important features, which are indispensable for me.

1. Quickly jot down my thought, which may be totally different from what I am doing at the moment.
2. Quick copy paste from different apps.
3. Keep some complex google search text to use in searches.
4. Small code snippets to refer the logic for different apps.
5. And the most important to auto note down what I am typing in the password field.

I am sure, you will find more uses from it in your day to day use.

Regards,

Anand
