Are You One Of Those Sticky Notes Junkies Junking Up Your Desk?

A Confused Mind Says No
In my effort to bring to you cool things  I find while on this genealogy mission, and to help you not be so darn confused, I remind you of Stickies.

My friends and relatives, it's time to clean that desk and move those yellow pieces of clutter off your desk and onto your computer screen.

What is Stickies?

Stickies is a PC utility written to try to cut down on the number of yellow notes you might be leaving everywhere, even on your monitor. 

It is a computerised version of those notes.

The design goal behind Stickies is that the program is small and simple. Stickies will not mess with your system files, or write to the registry.

Stickies stores information in a single text-based ini file.

Stickies will never support animated dancing figures, or play "Greensleeves". They are instead yellow rectangular windows onto which you can put some text notes. Once created, they will stay on screen until you take them away. Just like a real sticky piece of paper.

To demonstrate, on the right is a photo clip of my screen with a few of my top secret to do items put on Stickies. Don't get a magnifying glass, it will burn your screen up.

Stickies is free which is cool, along with how cool they are. You can donate.
