Freeware Sticky Notes: Hott Notes

Trying out this freeware sticky notes program called Hott Notes, because I think I can get ideas out faster by typing rather than scrawling them on index cards as I have been doing for a while.

Hott Notes rocks because it has a cool "crumple" sound effect when you delete stickies; also its stickies have a very nice default appearance, with a gradient background. Also there are three different kinds of stickies: Message, Checklist, and Scribble. The user interface is superb - it's immediately obvious where everything is and what the controls do.
