and a number of others.  They definitely have the topics covered!

Posted on November 6, 2007. Filed under: Everything, Freeware/Shareware, Utilities | Tags: , , , |

Stickies replaces the PostIts notes stuck all over your monitor. Once on screen, stickies will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots. They can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Stickies can be resized. Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up. Stickies can be attached to a web site, document or folder so they only show when it’s on screen.
Stickies can be emailed to others. Stickies can be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders. Stickies can have alarms set to ensure you notice them at a point you choose. Stickies can be transferred to and from your Palm or PPC PDA. Stickies works with Windows 95 up through Vista. Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a single text file, and does not alter the registry…. and Stickies is completely free! Recommended by Gizmo’s Tech Support Alert newsletter.
