From this article on using PDF for presentations. PDF has been my solution for presenting away from my computer, because I still use MORE for my presentations and the likelihood of finding a Mac OS 9 or earlier machine to use is essentially zero.

At the end of the article, there was a link to Notebook, a personal Wiki with a Tk front end. Unlike many Wikis, it doesn't require you write all your page names as InterCaps, a practice I find annoying and confusing.

From there I explored some other Tk Wikis, in particular WiKit, which uses MetaKit as a back-end database, and supports either Tk/local or Web access (but not both simultaneously). MetaKit looks like a nice, cross-language and cross-platform embedded database for small data sets. In the bizarre connections department, Apple's Address Book application for Mac OS X also uses MetaKit.
