OK - I admit it - I haven't been doing posting of much significance recently. What I've done instead is to build up a tolerance to the sight of an infant with spit-up covering the entire side and back of his head who is also urinating on my hand while soiling his recently removed diaper... <sigh>... Anyways, something ostensibly more closely related to verification is the experiment I'm trying on my current engagement. Instead of writing all my notes down in a notebook or 10 I've started keeping anything I deem useful in a personal TiddlyWiki.
A TiddlyWiki is similar to a regular wiki but is contained entirely within one file. It doesn't use a fancy database setup of any sort - the entire contents of the wiki are contained in plaintext within a single file. That makes it extraordinarily portable! In my opinion, TiddlyWiki's are even better than regular wikis for "micro-content" due to the ability to tag entries, ala del.icio.us. It also has a built-in search box to make it easy to find content. I've been using it since December and have amassed quite a collection of notes which I use every day. I especially like the fact I can publish an RSS feed so I can easily share my notes with others. Check out the tutorial for yourself and let me know what you think!
