Portability
AlephNote is portable by design- settings are saved in noteapp.config file inside program folder, notes are saved .notes sub-folder inside program folder.
By strict definition, like every .NET program, AlephNote is not stealth- AlephNote.exe.log file is created in AppData (C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\CLR_v4.0_32\UsageLogs\AlephNote.exe.log).

Instructions
  • Download the archive;
  • Extract the archive to a folder of your choice;
  • Run AlephNote.exe;

Requirements
AlephNote requires .NET 4 and runs under Windows 7, 8, 10.

License
AlephNote is licensed under MIT License.

Note
The developer, Mike Schwörer, is very helpful and open to suggestions.
I have decided to retire from this site because of the creeping censorship but I made an exception to review AlephNote- the program is promising but unknown and the developer is friendly. I believe that AlephNote needs some publicity and that it may be useful for the community.

This is perfect -- I've been using Resophnotes for years now and it's great to find an alternative that's both active and open source. Thanks for that.

I've spoken with him separately on this. He felt that de-linking to the Opera source code download amounted to censorship. My rationale behind this move is here. Note that we are still linking to the 4chan homepage.

I'm of course sad to see Smaragdus go, but he's done some amazing things for this site and I appreciate his work to this point. Whatever project he moves on to will be lucky to have him.

For the record, I definitely don't count removing links to illegal stuff as censorship.

Very sorry to see you go smaragdus. :cry:

But I do agree with webfork on this one -- the survival of TPFC depends on a very strict adherence to no-warez rules...

Me not very knowledgeable of the cause for Smaragdus to leave and me also very despondent to figure it out.... but I'm very convinced in my mind that whatever it is, it's not worth the awesomeness of Smaragdus deeds in TPFC. :( and BTW this is an awesome thread (AlephNote) since I use ResophNotes every single day, everywhere

Agreed. I'm really digging the program so far.

I came out against the linking because hosting illegal programs or illegal code will in the long run hit our search engine rankings -- something that we've maintained pretty well over the years with little effort.

That said, I'd certainly make an exception in this case but ultimately this is Andrew's site and his call. Also, smaragdus is one of the few people I've been lucky enough to get to know personally via my work on this site. I think he had his eyes on some other projects and I wish him well.
