That's Wikis, not Kiwis!

Alright, anyways... onto personal wikis for your desktop.

I've found this freeware personal Wiki to be a very nice application. One solitary exe to worry about. A solid basic wiki. My only complaint with it, so far, is that doesn't do external links. I've found a workaround for local files, but I'm still trawling for doing an external link to a website.

Shareware. Cheap. It's nice, but I don't like its 32K limit of text per page, nor its 400 total pages limit in one set/web (they call them books).

Anyone else have any favorites? I think a personal wiki should not require you put MySQL and/or Apache on a machine just to run it, and that requirement cuts down the field considerably.

Mr_G, did she return the favor?

Aredhran, what is your work using Twiki for, or is it just you using it?

We use it as a central store of reference material for the engineering team such as operating procedures, system usage and monitoring statistics, etc.

Cool. But that's a team/work collaborative knowledge capture system, and not your own personal wiki then, right? ;)

Are you using it for your own personal work needs, or purely for your collective work needs? Asked a different way, have you set up a local copy on your own workstations, or are you just using your team/business's wiki site to capture and collaborate with your co-workers?

BTW, I've started using:

WikidPad
http://www.jhorman.org/wikidPad/

It's an outliner/personal wiki, so its an interesting bit of software. Notebook is nice, but it's text editor sucks so bad, I'm amazed people haven't strangled the author to death on cheap american beer.
