Thanks for introducing yourself and StackNotes. I don't think I had come across StackNotes
before - though the name sounded familiar, I didn't recollect it and couldn't find any notes I made about it, anyway.
Today I read up about and then downloaded StackNotes v1.043 via the website links you gave.
I was not too impressed until I discovered from the Help file that it has some very interesting/useful and synergistic plugins:
- Encryption / Decryption - StackNotes now supports the highly secured AES encryption algorythm through the use of a third-party command-line program called "AESCrypt". You can now easily secure your padfiles and take 'em everywhere with you (e.g. USB stick) without the risk of beeing robbed of sensitive information. Just be sure to not forget any password you use to encrypt your documents because there is no mean to recover an encrypted file without the corresponding password. You've been warned. Also, take the time to visit the "AESCrypt" homepage to learn more on this open source project. Last word : if you work with very sensitive information, consider the fact to use dedicated software to wipe the free space on your drive to prevent file recovery.
- Screen Loupe - a screen magnifyer.
- Recorder - allows you to record the output from your sound card to a WAV file, then convert it to the MP3 format using the "LAME" command line tool (freeware).
- Snapshot - allows you to capture your desktop, a program's window or a control inside a window to a bitmap (BMP file format).
- Password Generator - produces base64 passwords.
- Contacts - a basic contacts manager.
The [open source] AESCrypt
and the other plugins make StackNotes
a potentially very useful toolset, and so I am trialling it in earnest now.
