Thought Bucket

Thought Bucket was born out of desperation. I am always coming up with ideas that I think are very worthy of being remembered. However, I am usually unable to remember them unless I write them down. Of course, once written down, I forget where I wrote them down. I have close to a dozen notebooks with random, disorganized thoughts scribbled in the margins. It is a blessing that I even remembered to create the Thought Bucket in the first place.

Most people are probably asking themselves, "Isn't this just another Blog in the already crowded Blog market?" I will admit that Thought Bucket can be used as a blog, but that is not it's intended purpose. The reason Thought Bucket exists is to remember things for you. "Is this an appointment keeper?" is the next logical question. The answer to that is: Nope. Thought Bucket is more designed to let you remember things like your girlfriend's favorite ice cream flavor, how to setup a Linux thin client (once you have figured it out), neat vi tricks that you have learned, etc. Think of it as your own personal encyclopedia that contains only topics that you care about and only information that you need to refer back to.

After you have downloaded the package and opened it, the next thing you should do is cd into the new directory that was created and read the README file. Just follow the instructions from there and all should go well. If you have problems, you can always contact me and I will try to respond as quickly as I can.

If you want to see a Thought Bucket in action, visit mine. Keep in mind that all coding done on Thought Bucket is done directly to my own Bucket. That means that if you are lucky (or unlucky as the case may be), you will hit errors because I am in the middle of some major changes. Just try back later (usually just a minute or three) and it should be cleared up.
