A good personal wiki with tags? OR, fiction writing software?

I'd like to find some software to organize and tie together less-important details in my story. Probably I want a personal wiki--but which one? I'm open to wiki alternatives also. [more inside]

Always scribble, scribble, scribble -- now how to display?

I've been keeping research notebooks since the early 1990s, on a lot of different subjects. They're all finally consolidated as a couple thousand text files written in Markdown syntax. I'd like to start putting them up, gradually, on a website for others to use. A wiki seems the best way. (Is it?) I've got a few other questions about the best one, and best way, though: [more inside]

Please listen carefully, as our options have changed

My place of employment has a long and convoluted phone tree that our clients have to wade through when they call in. No one in the organization seems to have written everything down in one place, and I'm trying to create a...document?...that allows us to conceptualize which of our menu options lead where, and what they say at each point. What's the best/easiest way to do this and make it useful? [more inside]

Writer wiki link

Find A Website: Funny Community Wiki Site w/ Case Studies of Fictional Occult Objects

The titles for the show "Hotbox" remind me of a wiki-based community site I saw a while ago. Every article on the site is a dry, passive-voice case study of some (usually hilariously dangerous) fictional occult object or person, and the site itself is allegedly run by some giant MIB-style organization. The site has very specific acronyms and vocabulary, and I can't remember any of it except that agents are called agents and there's a running joke about appropriate euphemisms for when they're killed.

Help me learn to template MediaWiki

I am trying to find concise, direct instructions on how to create templates (not skins, templates) for MediaWiki and I'm coming up short. While Google has tons of hits, many incorrectly identify skins as templates, and the rest spread the information out through so many other topics that it is simply frustrating. Is there a resource out there that will help me develop MediaWiki page templates in a step-by-step fashion?

What movie was that piece of music in?

I'm trying to find an online database or wiki that is devoted solely to music in film. I'm looking for a site where I can either search for a piece of music and find out what films that piece of music appeared in, or search for a film and find out what music appeared in that film. Does this site exist?

Cool Stuff to Run In Your Webspace?

What free, open-source projects can I run in a privately accessible portion of my webspace that would be useful to me in terms of making things more practical in my own life (think Lifehacker-43 Folders kind of stuff)?
