Tiddly Gushy

Got a thumb drive full of valuable stuff but can never find anything on it because you can never remember what the filenames mean? Have multiple work machines that you just wish would have a common address book? Ever wish you could run a private wiki at work but you're not allowed? Ever hear of TiddlyWiki?

A coworker showed me TW a couple days ago and I haven't put it down since. It's a tool that I've been needing for a very long time now.

For those that don't know, it's a wiki written in JavaScript, meant to run from the local file system (e.g., hard disk or thumb drive). It looks like it'd make a good index tool for CDs or DVDs full of miscellaneous kruft. It looks like it'd make a good container for various beginner's guides also. I'll keep you posted.
