Usually when I come across really useful or helpful information on the web I will save it using the ‘Delicious‘ bookmarking facility.
I will add many tags so that I remember how I saved it. If it has to do with a NET11 related topic I will tag it with the prefix ‘NET11…’ and add the detail afterward. I am a bit of a bookmarking addict but I will say that it has reduced the amount of disk space I use locally. Previously my bookmarks would be saved locally on my computer and I have maxed out a few computers now with too much information. So now, Delicious has allowed me to saved my favourite or useful sites/pages/PDF’s virtually.
If I am to store information like copies of PDF’s found online I will save them to a flash drive on my local computer. I no longer store items to the hard drive (hence, my reluctance to load new programs to the computer) rather everything is saved to Flash drives now. I will also add a prefix to the file name or I will place them in a specific folder so that I do not have to remember too much when I need to retrieve. In addition, I will try to give it meaningful names so that if I do a ’search’ on my local computer I will have greater chance of retrieval
