Or you could do like I do. Just write it on a physical sticky note and stick it on the side of your machine or on a small piece of paper that sits by your keyboard.

I find the "old way" works best. IMHO, electronic organizers or reminders are too easy to ignore or forget. That physical piece of paper just sits there staring at you until you get to the task. lol

Thanks for the links! I've downloaded the program "snotes" from the first link and it seems to work pretty well. All I had to do to install it was download the file, install one little C++ development library package, and run the program.

Notice that I also said a small piece of paper. I was referring to a piece of paper that sits horizontally on your desk by your keyboard...not a sticky-note that sticks vertically on the side of your monitor. You're correct, those have a tendency to fall off.

If my mouse keeps bumping against a piece of paper, I know I have something I need to do. lol

And then, of course, I just *have* to check my PM box to see what it is.

Though, yes, if I could find a sticky-note program that both a) makes notes that can stick on top of other windows, and stay there; and b) runs on Linux, then that would be great.

Edit: OK, range has been loaded.
atnotes will do notes that are always on top i think

You know, I already use that method for tons of stuff--not sure why I didn't think of it for prime-searching reminders. I'll keep it in mind!

Yes, it looks like a very complete program and, in fact, I would have installed it, except that it doesn't appear to have a Linux version available.
