I'm very pleased that we have so many bright minds here that outshine mine. But I'm a frightningly fast typist, and not the dullest knife in the drawer. So I imagine I'm not alone in shock at times when I see a thick new question, and within 30 seconds somebody has an incredibly thorough response, with links, registry keys, and the kitchen sink attached. Well-formatted, mind you.
Experience counts for a lot, but it occurs to me that my mishmash of scribbled notes, bookmarks, docs, etc. isn't the most efficient way for me to file away what I've learned in the course of my daily projects (and am highly likely to forget within a week, if it's not documented).
Personal issue tracking apps? Eidetic memory? Or just better Googling skills? The ability (and stamina) to organize this information and bring it quickly to your fingertips is arguably one of our most important skills. How do you do it? (top rep scores not required)
