I am an expert on Microsoft Access. On PHP and MySQL, I have more experience than expertise. For manipulating text files, Python is delightful; my attempts to use Python for web development are less so.

I'm still looking for the ultimate personal information manager. TiddlyWiki is way out in front. TiddlyWiki version 5 will extend this pre-eminence, I hope.

comment Redirected during the day: Can I reduce the negative impact?
This sounds good. I already do this ... but not coherently. If I start doing it coherently, there's more than one benefit (for example, presenting my boss with 'what-ifs' for my use of time).

+1 - 'write high quality code everyday' and everything else you wrote.

Being "more productive" and "one of the updated" are not always the same. Do you just mean, How do I stay sharp? How to stay informed, and keep learning?

comment What is the best wiki to install and run locally?
You won't find a more powerful implementation of tags than TiddlyWiki. And, heh, you won't find a more obscure system of plugins. Personally I find TW a delightful solution for the set of needs you described.

comment What FUTURE-PROOF software for building & managing a personal BIG knowledge base?
I would never class TiddlyWiki with some of the proprietary solutions you cited, and 'antithesis' seems a very strange thing to say! TiddlyWiki is as future-proof as ASCII -- you can extricate all your text with any editor. I would also like to say that I'm handling 1 million words in a TW (using necessary plugins only).

comment Self-hosted Evernote alternative?
The post specifies "great interface". I am unhappy with CintaNotes. I find no particular fault, but I DO find myself wading around to find what I need, and I'm used to TiddyWiki which presents no such challenge.
