Use multiple Stickies note sets via AppleScript System
Several of my friends use Stickies so often that they have tens of notes all over their desktops. We looked for a way to manage multiple sets of stickies, but couldn't find one, so I threw together the SwitchStickies AppleScript [download] that does it for you.

Note that, for some reason, Stickies doesn't respect symbolic links or aliases when writing (though it does when reading), so you actually have to move the files around and rename them, which makes the script a bit too complex to just copy and paste.

This script could be adapted for 10.2 (Jaguar) by changing file references from ".StickiesDatabase" to "StickiesDatabase".

Look at StickyBrain 2 from Chronos Software. Very cool! Store Stickies in multiple categories and has Sherlock style search.www.chronosnet.com
