[PLUG] organizing notes

I had the same problem for awhile.  What I ended up doing was create a 
MySQL database with some tables that would allow me to organize things 
in my own way.  Then I created a web page using PHP that will display 
the categories I want and when I click on it I can see all my notes for 
that category.  It's not perfect by any means but it works better than 
storing all of this info in a text document.
