wiki on a stick
wiki on a stick is an AWESOME implentation of wiki! I have been looking for an easy way to create and maintain simple FAQ and HELP pages for my direct reports at work. most people use an archaic system of crappy word .DOCS that look terrible, print terrible, and are horendous to create. I had resigned myself to writing straight HTML and using my less than steller style to put it all together.
I started reading up on wiki. I found out about wiki from wikipiedia.org, an online user generated repository of information. afterall, if you can't find what you want in google, its probably in wikipedia. as I looked around, I found complex database driven wiki's, and thats not what i'm interested in. I want something simple, easy, and fast.
This implementation lives in a single HTML file. the base file is around 50kb. no servers to install and maintain, and nothing to setup. just start clicking and creating. Thanks WIKI on a STICK!!
*note, a similar program,
tiddlywiki may be more feature rich, but seems bloated to me.
