Project 1: Wiki on a Stick
If you fancy taking your own customised pile of documentation and notes wherever you go, there's a perfect solution called Wiki on a Stick. As its name implies, this is a project that offers a go-anywhere web-based wiki that's entirely self-contained, and can be used for all the same things a full fat wiki can. The package is provided as a Zip archive, and after you've unzipped this, usually with a double click, you'll find a single .htm file remains.
