do you like sticky notes? when i heard about it, the concept seemed pretty hokey to me. there are an assortment of ways to capture notes on the desktop. notepad, remember the milk, outlook, etc. i thought i’d give it a try to see if i could capture random, short-lived things that you tend to quickly forget.
as it turns out, it worked – and i’m hooked. i don’t just like sticky notes, i love sticky notes. i keep notes for new music i want to explore later, short errands to run, and topics i want to look further into later.
the one short coming is that i can’t sync the notes. i’m sure there are an assortment of ways to making this magic happen, but i decided to use a service i’ve been using for awhile: live mesh.
now really, all you have to know is the path where sticky notes keeps all its information:
C:\Users\<your user profile name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes
- install live mesh on all computers where sticky notes synchronization needs to take place.
- on the first computer, navigate to the path noted above and choose “add folder to live mesh”.
- on the other computers, open up the live mesh program.
- in the news feed, locate where you created the live mesh folder.
- when you click the folder, it’ll ask to set the synchronization on the computer. locate the path noted above and insert that as the “location”.
