For a while now I have been waiting for tomboy to be ported to windows because I am stuck in windows land for now because of my sound problem. However on the net it is always talked about having tomboy for Windows but no one has ever released anything that could be considered usable.
So I just started to search for a desktop wiki for windows and I came across wikidPad. It’s written in python using wxwidgets, it is uncompromisingly geeky. In that it is uses a wiki style markup and stores everything in text files, ahh the geekness. It has full regex search and incremental searching of pages. It exports to HTML for showing others.
So like Accountants use Excel for recording their thoughts and ideas I can now record in a wiki.
Other useful features is auto save and tags so you can always find what you were working on. I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who needs to record their ideas and loves not using the mouse, everything has keyboard shortcuts and it is a syntax based markup so no trying to find bold just type the syntax.
