Consolidate your notes with Stickies

How did we ever get along before PostIts? Those ubiquitous little pieces of yellow (and other colors) paper stuck to documents, books, and computer monitors are everywhere. Someone landing here from another planet might well think they were some sort of religious talisman that we used to stay in the good graces of the Powers that Be.

Unfortunately, little sticky notes don't stick forever. They also aren't too portable, especially when they're glued onto your laptop computer. Maybe there's a way to keep the metaphor in a slightly more durable version.

Stickies is a Windows app that lets you create virtual sticky notes on your computer. Nothing fancy, they don't jump around the screen or feature multimedia content—they just sit there to remind you of the important things you need to do. You can tweak the colors, font, and other appearance-related properties, so they look good on your desktop. You can leave 'em scattered around the desktop, or you can snap them to the side; even hook them together if that's what make sense. You can set them to pop-up at specified times, so you've got a Stickies reminder of what you need to do.

Stickies is a Windows application.

    It doesn’t say if Stickies will work on Vista or not. I have learned the hard way a lot of things don’t work on Vista. Can anyone please tell me about Stickies and Vista?
