A writer. I love to write programs and I love to write books.

I currently use Python, but want to learn Haskell. First learned language is Pascal, first language that I worked with is PL\SQL.

@JFW Now about section groups. I use them when I feel that I'm running out of hierarchy levels. Section groups are basically just folders in windows file structure, so they can provide you any level of hierarchy you need. Just don't forget about 256 bytes name limit, or you will have problems while copying your notebooks.

comment How do you track random thoughts and ideas?
@JFW There is one decision, that I think made my notebooks quite organized. I established rules and patterns and my head about how certain sections should look. Today I also decided to provide meta page in every section, because I'm starting to forget all this patterns and rules. But I haven't yet thought about how group sections should look.

@JFW Notebooks in ON can have sections and group of sections. Sections can have pages, and subpages down to the third level (page + sub + subsub). I have one main section in every notebook, where I do store some unmanaged yet data. Today I also decided to have an essential meta section, that is describing for what this notebook is and isn't.

@JFW I'd made some screenshots, they'd explain all in seconds, but they'd be in Russian, so they'd not make sense here. I'll try to explain by words. I started organizing it quite recently, and improving day by day. I have a notebook for every large part of my life: i.e Personal, Work, Education, Wisdom (I store tips and hints I've gained here), Books (I store my books there), Projects(programming projects), Readings, Mockups(here common patterns are lying) and Programs(Lightweight (<100mb) soft)

@John Smithers Water is ok, really any drinkable liquid is favouring productivity. But hot drink with a tasty aroma, ahh, this is irreplaceable.
