New Domain and A New Project

A quick update on the domain name, I've registered jeffscudder.com and set up an email account, so you may be getting some mail from a new address the near future. I'm still looking for an idea on a domain to register for hosting projects. I'd like to get a name where my friends and I can all hook our email monikers (I don't imagine anyone wants to be bob@jeffscudder.com).

I've been working on a new project. I'm a huge fan of tiddlywiki, I've been using it almost a year now for keeping my notes organized. As I've continued to use it, I've found three things I would like to change:
  1. Contents are saved in plaintext. I carry my tiddlywiki around on a pen drive and some of the notes contain personal information that I'd like to keep safe. Plus, I like playing with cryptography.
  2. Notes are saved to a local file. This is both a strength and a weakness, the problem is I sometimes use multiple computers and I want to easily move between them. I'd like to have the option of saving to a local file or a server.
  3. It is sometimes slow. There is a lot of eye candy and it is very customizable, but I just want something lighweight, small, and simple.
I've gotten pretty far on my own wiki web app. but it's not quite ready to share. Keep an eye out for a release sometime in the near future.

I leave you with a song that has been stuck in my head all of last week: Deathbed by Relient K.
