Why not stick to really card made from paper? I returned to this kind of greeting cards for birthdays and christmas and it was very well received. No need to do everything online...

Wow, so many replies. It's quite a useful community :)

There's a firefox plugin for this - via greasemonkey.  It's called textarea backup.  It has worked very well for me.   I hope this is helpful.

Thanks, I will try this one. Still it seems like a little hack. From the comments the app its under suspicion to clutter about:config, where tests are stored but not always deleted.

Coding Snack Guidelines / IDEA: copy last text field inside a browser
« on: January 17, 2008, 06:13 PM »
Well, complicated heading, I suppose.

I am thinking of a workaround for a big web annoyance: having just finished entering a larger text into a web form (e.g. the body of an email or an entry in a forum) than hitting the right button, but having lost connection or the session, or hitting the wrong button and leaving the current page -> your entry is lost.

I usually do Ctrl-A Ctrl-C to have a backup of my entry before I continue navigating, but I think that could be done automatically: copying the contents of the text field having the last focus. Maybe this is an idea for a Firefox plugin?

sorry i didn't reply to this earlier.
both of those ideas are already on my todo list, so we must think alike.

No problem because to the delay. After all, we all have another life off-line, haven't we?

Nice to hear, you are thinking in the same direction... The app was reminding me of a PalmOS app called 'Universal Tracking System',, which is a great deal more generic, but I used it for stuff, I will possibly be doing with Point Motivator.

Living Room / Re: How do you tag (or even organize) your files?
« on: January 17, 2008, 05:55 PM »
I am currently in the process of comparing TaggTool and tag2find (will take me the at least the weekend) and just ran across a blog entry at the tag2find web site: The companies funding has ceased!

This is the main reason, why development did not advance the last weeks (or month). They currently are evaluating to go open source, which might get very interesting. (And might also get them ahead of TaggToll, which based on the feature list is currently my first choice).


Alle except, http://goodimproveme...ware/gi-time-tracker, and are web based. Which has some disadvantages

- You can only use them, when online.
- You have to download your data on a regular base or risk losing it.
- You will tell some organisation, what you are doing in your time (I don't want to do this.)


Hmmm, cannot really figure out how this is working. Deleting task only works part of the time, I cannot see any status or recording of times. Looks interesting and I will try some more, but I really am afraid that this is not a fully functional program.


Does any of you guys di some counting of interrupts? I just stumbled across of which I liked the idea very much. Counting interruptions an undisturbed periods of work. But the GUI is somewhat flawed in disturbing other programs including itself. But the counting should in principle be possible with a good time tracking software also.

Skrommel's seems to be on a sabbatical but maybe all these bug reports may tempt him back.. :-\

I hope it does! As for now, the bug with winodws reappearing again and again became so unnerving, that I removed the app from my system :-(

bardamu2000, there's a few threads recently here about tagging and organising of files (maybe if you do a search for each word) which I think have gone into great detail re problems & options

I will check, at a quick glance I only found a thread about tagging the forum. But it seems to be more concerned with banning certain words as tags.

sounds a bit like SQL-Notes to me -
not sure about the tagging as such cause I dont know the programme well enough but:
Long thread here SQLNotes...what is it exactly?
It's being developed at the moment in Beta so you could always make a request!

Thanks for the pointer, I have checked this one out. - It wasn't love at first sight, though. I did stumble across Evernote, which comes pretty close to what I have been looking for. Tags are called categories and can even be automatically assigned. Alarms are missing, sadly.

bardamu2000: i'm sorry to be the one to break the news to you but Keynote has ceased to be developed by its original programmer. :) ...[/url].

I knew this already, seems true that all good things come to an end eventually.

Tagging - I wish I had though of that early enough.

I am quite sceptical about all the Web 2.0 hype, but to me, taggs seem to be a wonderful way of classifying "everything". Currently I am looking into ACDSee, which is using it for photos and found it would be a good addition to note taking software as well. BTW, does somebody know if there is some kind of a tagging framework for computer files (Windows)? It's such a universal approach to getting stuff organized, tagging for everything could be my next killer app.

Alarms though I never felt were a good idea for KeyNote - there is an explanation why in the FAQ (last item in the 1st section)

I see your point. But if one would choose a different approach to organising notes than files, all the notes could be held in one big pool. Problem solved - though I see some new ones coming along.


Other media content - not recommended due to the way binary data is stored in RTF format. Including even a single high-res picture will bloat the knt file hugely, and there is no way to avoid it except to use a completely different data format, which was not available at that time. (If you wanted text formatting, RTF was the only viable option - and this hasn't changed much really, though there are two commerical Delphi editor components that replace richedit nicely). There's a chapter on that in the FAQ as well :)

You are perfectly right about the problems with RTF. Seems like my ideas really demand a new architecture an can not be build easily on top of KN. As a first and very rough draft, I see a database holding different types of "notes" (real ones, media stuff...), easy drag&drop and copy/paste functionality, tags and mayby categories, and an alerting mechanism (not to forget editors)... a new application! Or maybe somebody knows on already capable of all this stuff?

How about the option to "Clear ALL" to stop prevoiusly closed programs from popping up again UNWANTED, unless you can fix the problem. bigbazza

I have got the same problem of apps coming back automatically after 60s and I think a KILL via tray would be a good an easy solution to this.

Seems this conversation went to sleep a long time ago. Any updates?

Personally I am a great fan of KeyNotes, but I would like to see some additional features
- drag and drop URLs and media
- Post-It functionality for single notes
- alarms
- tagging (in addition to categories).

Somebody having a tip for me?

Point Motivator / Suggestions
« on: January 07, 2008, 08:07 AM »

I just recently stumbled in - I found a link to Point Motivator at LifeHacker.

So far the applications works just fine. But after some play, I think the following function would be helpful:

- Track point in different categories (e.g. if I want to track my progress in working out and reading). I know, you can change xml, but this a bit to much of a fuss.

- Set goals (e.g. x points a week). I think the setting of goals is an essential part of motivation.

I would like to discuss those points.

Cheers, F.
