    I tend to write stuff down here and there when it strikes me as important. I have notebooks full of stuff and they are not organized, but they are unified.

    The notes written on my computer are another story altogether. I end up with scattered rtf, txt, doc files all over the place and it's really a hassle to find anything in that mess.

    I know that Google Desktop is set up so that you can search inside documents and such, but I'd prefer something more... professional. Something more unified. Like my notebooks.

    Is there any decent software out there that is made for this specific purpose? Surely there must be, but any recommendations?

    Well.. Google Sidebar has the option of a Scratch pad that allows you to stuff info on it that it automaticaly saves.

    I know this sounds lame, but there is a program that allows you to put post-it notes all over your desktop.. Yay! :/

    Nah. Stickit notes aren't what I had in mind. They're as random and disorganized as leaving txt files lying around everywhere is.

    Doesn't sound like scratch pad is what I had in mind either.

    I'm looking for something that is usable for the long term. Something that you can search for specific entries. Something which is organizable. I would think that Microsoft Office would come with something somewhat suitable for the purpose, but it doesn't. The closest is in Outlook, but it hardly suffices for the job.

    I've found a piece of software that I'm trying out now.

    The Journal.

    45 day free trial. Haven't found any cracked versions out there. But, it seems good so far, I'll give it the go and maybe buy it at the end of the trial period.

    However, any recommendations would be nice. I should probably shop around a bit before buying something.
