big bad voodoopad

in the past, i've tried to get myself into a personal private wiki regime, but i could never seem to get myself to get into the regular habit. sure, i'd give it the ol' college try for awhile, but i'd eventually fall back into my old habits of tossing stuff that should have gone in the wiki into a sticky note . i think the browser inferface never felt quiet right, which is wierd because i don't normally hate browser interfaces. anyway, i had big plans to try something like tinderbox, but it seemed like it might be a bit much for what i needed and never could justify the $145 pricetag.

but i might be finally able to wean myself from my sticky note habit, now that i seemed to have taken a liking to voodoopad. what's amusing is that voodoopad has been sitting on my drive for ages and i just never opened the application. i guess that's as good a testimony as any for how difficult it is to change user behavior. for whatever reason something has clicked and i'm starting to use it more, and i'm am really liking it. i could easily see it becoming "must have" application.

relatedly, i wonder why subethaedit hasn't included the ability to edit in "wiki" mode. maybe they have, i haven't downloaded a new version in awhile. it looks like other people are wondering the same thing.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
