I have a plain text file that’s basically my notes, bookmarks, how to write ups and anything. I mark each section with hashtag labels, and set alias vinfo=vim /path/info.txt. Anytime I need to reference back how to setup some configuration, or the typical arguments for a command, or likes to YouTube vids on my watch list, I just vinfo in, and /#<topic>. It’s the best system I’ve used, and out lived all the Evernote’s, todo lists, stickies, whatever. Dropbox or chron rsync it to where u want.
