Objectivism writing prompt online course?

Someone described to me an online "finding yourself" sort of thing, where you get writing prompts every day for weeks. It's run, I think, by the wife in a couple of Ayn Randian Objectivists, though I don't think Objectivism is overtly a part of the online course. [more inside]

To-do / notes app with export, simple design?

I like to journal using lists / task applications - right now I'm using GoogleTasks which with over 1k lines is getting clunky and hard to use, e.g. I'll copy from one list and paste to another the cursor'll jump up to the top of the list just before I hit paste - drives me bonkers! [more inside]

Log Browsing History

How can I get Firefox (3.0.1) to log my browsing history to plain text files (preferably XML, but any that isn't essential)? At a minimum I'd like the URL, page title, and a timestamp for when I loaded the page. It would be nice to have how the page was accessed (via a link? direct entry?) and how long was spent on it.

In a journaling file system, why are journal writes more reliable than file system writes?

In a journaling file system like ext3, a journal entry is written before each file system change, describing the change about to be carried out. This allows quick recovery if the actual file change is interrupted or not carried out due to power outage or whatever. But why is the act of writing the journal entry not susceptible to the exact same threat of being interrupted? [more inside]

Some memories should be secret

CryptographyFilter: I'm an obsessive journaler, partly because I enjoy writing ideas etc down in my journals, partly because I have a terrible memory. Every now and then I would like to be able to record something in my journal that I wouldn't want to be read by someone who was less respectful of my privacy than I would hope them to be, or by someone who picked up one of my journals (which always have my contact details in the front) should I misplace one.

What do you write in your reading journal, if you keep one?

If you keep a journal based on what you read, how do you do it, what do you put in it, do you use a standard format, what do your entries consist of, etc? Newly inspired by the cool reading journal in the latest Levenger catalogue, I want to start one of my own, rather than just making and losing random notes as I have always done. I am not particularly interested in **buying** a reading journal, from Levenger or anyone else, but I do want to start keeping one, either in one of my blank Moleskins or in a loose-leaf folder or something. So I'd appreciate hearing about any cool tricks or formats or whatever that you use. If, for example. you were going to make a journal entry based on reading Love's Labors' Lost, what would you put in it? Thanks, Lustra
