Is there a desktop sticky program like google?

I've been using the sticky widgets on the google personalized home page.

I have about 20 stickies on one tabed page acting like 3x5 cards. The beauty of this is that I can see all the info by just scrolling down and each sticky can be altered in size as I type. I have @ lists, my covey Quad system and misc thought/goals/roles.

Is there a desktop mac program that has this same ability? The regular mac stickies are ok but I like the ability to have one page w/all my info on it. With the mac sticky they're all over the place.

I used to use Stickies...

I used to use Stickies for Windows when I used to use Windows. In linux I tend to just use flat text files (then vim outliner (OTL) files, then ReST files, then LaTeX files depending on complexity)

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
