Once you either
want to insert a picture in your note, or
amount of notes gets past number 100

you will quickly realise why this is definitely NOT a good choice.

For creating an intra-web wiki, which is somehow very focused and limited to amount of articles - this is okay-ish.

But for note taking application? Ever seen a 15 Megabyte (and increasing) large HTML, full of Javascript and pictures in separate folders ?! Yeah.

I like this as a personal wiki. Everything saves to one html file with one java file. The interface is clean and everything works nicely the only drawback is that it doesn't look quite like a Wikipedia or similar site. Also, for some reason, some of the terminology is changed ('pages' are referred to as 'tiddlers')
