@David: Can you put bacon on those?

I'm sure Martin Rowe (a.k.a. MeasurementBlues) -- he with all the rules as to how one should eat one's bagels -- would say no ... but what does he know? LOL

@Elizabeth: If you're like me, one of the reasons you don't trust computers is BECAUSE you started designing them in 1980...

That might be it :-)

I'm sure you are correct ... and maybe if you were here in the office and you opened a OneNote window/page and demonstrated it I'd say "wow" ... but I'm sort of a creature of habit ... sometimes it's easier just to do things the same way ... just having a script to open all my notepad files is a big step for me LOL

@Betajet....I suspected as much....didn't know the Mel Brooks reference but Googled / YouTubed it (can you use YouTube as a verb like Google??  Well I just did.... :-) and they are pretty funny.

However the real purpose of my post was to provoke another round of potshots between Max and Measurement Blues....wait for Monday.... :-)

I trust computers pretty much... as long as I wrote all the software :-)

"Not in my cave", to quote Mel Brooks' 2000 Year Old Man.

Hi Max,

 

I am not sure if my first post attempt was successful, so here I try again. I want to suggest an alternative approach to some of your problems.

 

Instead of notepads - all of your notes could be held in one OneNote window/page. Of cause it depends on the size of your notepad files if everything can be shown nicely in one OneNote window/page.

It is a quite nice tool to keep all your notes. You get instantaneous search in all your "notebooks". You can place there screenshots or document "printouts". OneNote will do OCR text recognition and this allows to search for text in all your images that are in the notes! OneNote can also use various types of tags and search only for them.

Tables, diagrams, equations (with computed answers) and other things can added to the notes!

 

OneNote used to come with some more expensive Office packages. Now there is a free version (OneNote 2013) with the limitation that the notes must be stored on OneDrive and not on your PC. OneNote works quite well with OneDrive. This allows to open the notes from any type of a mobile device or any web browser on other computer that do not have OneNote.

Check the youtube video for a quick introduction: "Microsoft OneNote for Mac Demo". This video is short and most of things also apply to the Windows version.

It may take a bit of time to get used to it, but after this I am sure you will not go back to notepad files :o)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
