As I embark on my quest to become (eventually) a guru ;D in the use of AmiBroker and AFL, I am discovering many good websites and lots of code that I would like to save. I want to avoid just using browser bookmarks as they quickly become unmanageable and links often die. I would like some sort of Knowledge-Base that will allow me to save web-pages for review offline and most importantly, a way to save all the AFL code that I stumble across. It would need to support categories and searching.

I want to avoid the free services that allow you to save to the "Cloud". Saving to my local machine is preferred with some sort of browser integration so that I can save directly from the web.

Code management/archiving I think will be the most important followed by saving of web articles (text & images).

What do others use? Any recommendations?

Thanks
Laurie

You want some sort of desktop google :). I don't think anything that great exists but it would be a very useful thing.

LGC,

Check out Confluence at http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/

It is an enterprise grade wiki and collaboration tool.  For $10 you can get a license.  I have used it for years for storing research, articles, notes, files, etc.  Has some great features like full text search of attachments and you can link it to a sql database such as mysql.

If you have a ton of PDFs check out: http://www.mendeley.com/

Great for managing tons of pdf's and papers.  Plus it is free.

Hello Laurie,

FWIW, I used InfoSelect, but this has become bloated, so now I purchased AllMyNotes and works great for my use.

See: http://www.vladonai.com/

My old PIM (Personal Information Manager) was InfoSelect.
See: http://www.miclog.com/software/Misc/is10overview.html

Both great tools.

As far as website bookmarks, I use Roboform, which is also my password manager. Not free, but well worth it when you consider how often you need to use passwords and make them unique. Oddly, this application's author is close to the headquarters of the US NSA <vbg>, so a little thought is needed.

All the best from New Jersey, USA
