Paper, a developers best friend

Gus Mueller: "So a little while back as I was bugging Kirstin about some math (which I knew I had already bugged her about a couple of years previously, but couldn't find my notes on) I decided to get a little bit more organized. And I've now got two pretty thick sketch books, pictured above, with mostly empty pages in them but rapidly filling up. And I thought I'd just pass this tip on to you." - This is something I've done for years. I love National Brands Laboratory Notebooks. I have a stack of them from notes past, doodles, misc notes, strange names and phone numbers, and debugging sessions. They're a lot of fun to go back through and see what I was thinking at the time and how whatever I was working on at the time progressed. Most real drawings, Visio drawings, I've ever created started life on a piece of paper or a white board, maybe I shouldn't admit that, but a good piece of paper is still the fastest way to capture an idea, IMHO.
