HAVE A LOOK AT THIS
The way notes should work.
Stikkit gives you the digital equivalent of a sticky note: the easiest thing you can grab to jot down an idea or reminder. As you type, Stikkit watches for appointments, to-dos, people, bookmarks and more, magically extracting and organizing the important details. It's like having a personal assistant following along after you.
Welcome to the official Torpark homepage. Download Torpark and put it on a USB Flash keychain. Plug it into any internet terminal whether at home, school, or public. Run Torpark.exe and it will launch a Tor circuit connection, which creates an encrypted tunnel from your computer indirectly to a Tor exit computer, allowing you to surf the internet anonymously. How much does Torpark cost? IT'S FREE.

HAVE A LOOK AT SLIDESHARE
# What is SlideShare?
SlideShare is a free service for sharing presentations and slideshows. You can upload your PowerPoint and OpenOffice presentations, tag them, embed them into your blog or website, browse others' presentations, and comment on individual slides. It's a great way to share your ideas with others, or to learn from other people. And it's free.
# What kind of presentation files does SlideShare support?
We currently support PowerPoint (PPT and PPS formats), and OpenOffice (ODP format).
# But I use Keynote! Can I still use SlideShare?
No worries! Keynote will let you save in PPT format (Choose File>Export, Select "PowerPoint", and click "next"). You might see some minor variations in the PowerPoint file. In particular, PowerPoint does not support alpha-channel graphics, so if you use a photo cutout frame, the image behind it will appear in front.
# How do I embed a presentation into my blog or website?
It's pretty easy. First view the presentation on SlideShare. On each page, you'll see a text box called "embed", with funny looking code in it. It should look something like this
