Recover accidentally deleted (closed) Stickies notes Apps
Something I just tried on a whim that saved my sanity doesn't seem immediately obvious, so I thought I'd point it out ...

Normally, when you close a document without saving, that's it, game over, document gone. In Stickies, you can actually undo closing a sticky note you didn't save -- even after you confirm with the "Don't Save" button! I had a floating note and didn't realize I was going to close that one. I hit undo, and it came back!

Woot!

Pretty unrelated, but if you're a .Mac member you can get a free copy of Sticky Brain from the web page (after you login) http://www.mac.com/

Works way better than stickies.

StickyBrain

One thing I like about StickyBrain is that the context menu and/or keyboard shortcuts (via HotKey) can be used from Cocoa and Carbon applications. That makes its Grab Text functionality more useful than with Services which are limited to Cocoa apps (with a few exceptions).

Just for kicks, this works in the OS 9 version of Stickies too!

This seems to work for multiple Undos as well. I haven't counted, but it works for at least 2 notes.

Yeah, but undo doesn't always get back what you wanted....I lost the formating of a note and undid my change and lost data and format...

I had to redo it all, not that it was much work, but it seems like it is a snap shot feature and doesn't remember minor things.
