"Want to use a wiki to store your notes, thoughts, recipes, or just the best Charlie Sheen quotes you've heard today? Try setting up a personal wiki, like TiddlyWiki. It's easy, lightweight, and you can set it up and customize it in a weekend.

"You're no doubt familiar with MediaWiki, the wiki that powers Wikipedia. MediaWiki is a powerful wiki engine and great if you need to share a wiki with a lot of people for work or a project. But it's a bit too heavy for a single-user unless you enjoy maintaining a MySQL database and Web server to run it. It's not ridiculously hard, but it's more work than I feel like doing just for a wiki.

"TiddlyWiki, on the other hand, is a single-file download. You open it in the browser and that's it. Why do you need a weekend? Because it'll take a bit to get used to its conventions and it's very extensible."
