speaking of computers.....I've got a class where they are PROHIBITED.

believe it or not I think that is a good idea.

I would too if I could read my own handwriting. ;D

I bet you anything my handwriting is worse than yours.

I bet you anything that either of us could game this contest. ;)

Actually, no. I could produce years of notes and plenty of witnesses to back me up if needed. :)

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?

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 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

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

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.

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.
