I have a problem, and it has nothing to do with cowbell. It does, however, have to do with the eleventy-thousand text files that I have lying around my hard drive(s). I just can't keep them organized enough any more!
I've had this problem for a while, actually, and I've gone through a few different softwares trying to keep my notes organized. Freemind (too structured for general note taking. Mind-mapping FTW though!), Evernote (too bloated/relying on external systems for my data), mempad (no automatic off-disk backups so I can access it from anywhere, but close), and finally my blog (too public. heh.) were all options at one point and I spent some time with each one to get them to "fit".
Welp, nothing did. Mempad came the closest to what I was looking for, but when I emailed the author about adding some off-disk backups, like WebDAV, he in-not-so-many-words-but-still-friendly told me that he wasn't interested.
But, to be honest, that was exactly the answer I was looking for :)
I have been a fan of WebDAV since the way-back-when days of SVN infancy. The idea that I can turn a simple web server into a universal file system is incredibly powerful! Add versioning to that and you get oh-I-want-to-crap-my-pants awesome-ness-ity. What do you think Sharepoint is?
Anyway, with my interest in WebDAV, boredom of being away from the internets for a few days, and my recent inspiration from a Lifehacker article, I set out to build my own solution.....
.....And I present to you oNotes!
I am really looking for suggestions on how I can improve oNotes. Please leave a comment with any suggestions or problems.
