Note Title -- tagx anotherx againx -- 2013-01-26 14:35:23

Date is optional.

Tags are important for search mostly.


A Hazel script runs once a week and gets files that match the Scratchpad_YY-MM-DD convention and move them into a /Scratchpads/YYYY/MM_Month/ directory to help clean the root folder clean. Scratchpads are only really relevant for the week anyway and then get archived.
