FYI for new and old Mac-ies, I'm REALLY impressed with this application; I think I'm going to use it for notetaking:

What are your thoughts on OmniOutliner. I've played around with it a bit, it looks like it could possibly do the job.

I also have a class where laptops are prohibited (maybe we have the same professor?), and it's really making me think about just taking all my notes by hand. Heresy? Lunacy? Idiocy?

<---takes all notes by hand

<---has horrific handwriting

<---will prolly not do so well in class

I think, realistically, no matter which software you end up using it's just a matter of DOING THE WORK. And any word processing-type software (even lowly Notepad) is sufficient for getting stuff done. In fact, I often prefer working in Notepad because there are no distractions built in.

I guess what it comes down to, really, is which software has the bells and whistles to make the job easier for you.

AMEN

I've evaluated both, and feel like this program would be better than Omni Outliner, but mostly because I like the metaphors in this program better than the OO program.  Either one would take about an hour of reading/watching tutorials to feel comfortable in, I think.  To me, none of them are totally intuitive.

And yes, it does look a lot like OneNote, I agree.

I use Omni Outliner, and like it a lot. It's very simple and clean, which I like. I haven't tried this one, though.

Who asked you, Ms. Sunshine and Bouncy Blonde Hair?!

Random thought:

I didn't understand the logic behind the street with 5 UMich merchandise stores until I bought something from 4 of the stores all at once.

Haha. It took me three stores this morning to find a suitable Michigan magnet (Moe's Sport Shop on North U. was the winner - several different varieties)

OMFG COMCAST SUCKS.

  • my own cable modem
  • working cable outlet
  • proper cables


Phone call: 1 hour, 27 minutes, and 21 seconds later, I have teh internetz.


eta: anyone know if Sarafina got her XP clean install done? 

Done!  Thanks for your help!  Unfortunately I had to do it twice because I didn't realise that the computer store gives you two different versions of xp and I installed the 64bit version first.  But it all worked out in the end (currently typing this from zingerman's, mmm).

I had to do most of the system updates and stuff at Starbucks because I didn't have internet here yet.   >:(

Yeah, I did mine at Zingermanns.
