    Howdy, good friends

    To cut a long-story short (I spoke of such matters in another thread) I'm currently utterly Macless. I've got all my data on an external hard drive and am waiting for my new computer to arrive, but currently *need* some info that I had stored in a Sticky. Now, I still have StickiesDatabase, but I have no idea how I can view this file in Windows. Anyone any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey, I decided to mess around to see if I could help.

    I opened stickies, and put the text "MACRUMORS TEST" into a sticky closed the program.

    Then I opened the stickiesdatabase in text edit, and sure enough it's in there.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the attempt. I actually downloaded vim editor and worked it through that way in the end. It all appeared in a readable format.
