keeping notes on a wiki

Stepping firmly into 2005, I decided to keep notes and links and miscellanea on my own personal wiki! I'm trying to be better about remembering things, and also about keeping my stuff in a somewhat public, web-accessible place.

And I really like MoinMoin! It was easy to set up on our Ubuntu server. Up until now, I've mostly just kept a bunch of text files in version control, organized chronologically. But a wiki can be nonlinear, which is cool. Maybe sooner or later, my labmates will wiki with me on a shared wiki space...

How do you manage notes to yourself? Do you use a physical notebook? Some other kind of software? (where does it run?)
