    Hi all,
    there's this new thing like "stickies" that lets you quickly create a hyperlink to a new sticky. I think it's called Vodoo-something...

    anyone know where it is and exactly what it's called? It's a free download, or so I've been told.

    Are you thinking of VoodooPad? It's not new or open source, but the "lite" version is a freebie.

    That's it, thanks.
    Oh, so it's not open source?
    What's the difference between "Lite" and full on Voodoo?

    There is a similar type of program called WikiNotes, which is open source, that you could check out too.
    There is a feature comparison chart on the lite page.

    I forgot to ask.... which do you use?:D

    Does anyone else use Wikinotes over Stickies, Voodoo or Stickybrains?

    Mediawiki for big stuff, plain old Stickies for little stuff, paper away from the desk (it's harder to break). I had tried StickyBrain a few years ago, but (at least at the time) it was buggy and had a nasty tendency to corrupt its own database.

    It's me again :eek:

    One last question... does it bother you that it appears to be one person and not a whole open source team at Wikinotes? that's my first impression anyway.

    If mac could just get Stickies to have some of the cool linking functions... or even host an open source community site for developers and hackers to do their open source thang, then I'd be really rapt.
