Problems: 2 in 1 for Your Convenience

I have a problem. It’s not really that problematic. It’s more of an issue. Or just, ya know, a thing. But it’s also, in a way, two problems. In the same way that, for example, auctions and online auctions are worthy of seperate patents.

I used to carry a notebook. It was small, flexible and covered in the craziest random crap you’ve ever seen. I took note of songs that I wanted to download so that I would no longer be cursed by the affliction known as I’ve-Got-Bandwidth-What-Will-I-Do? I noted that Leela’s first name is Turanga. I listed things that were to be done, things that had been done, facts, allegations and other miscellany.

I no longer have such a notebook. Actually, I still have that old one, but it’s full. And it says 1998-99 on the cover. I intend to buy a new one, because they are oh so useful. In fact, I should make a note of my desire to buy a new one. If only I had something to write it in.

It occured to me today, while overhauling Scatterbrain for readability, stability and portability, that a neat feature would be the ability to leave private notes for oneself, including lists of things that need to be done. I would use said feature to track my ideas about new features like this one. If only I had a mechanism for remembering to implement it.

My solution is a cunning disguise of one such message as a post, so I’ll be reminded to buy my notebook and implement my, um, notebook.
