About Mindola

In 2004 I began to write a book and thought it possible to start at the beginning and write until I got to the end. At about page forty I forgot the name of the boy’s cousin’s neighbor and had to leaf back to find it. Next I went on vacation and forgot what I was writing about and had to re-read the last three chapters. In summary I could not keep track of what I was writing.

Eventually I surrendered and started to build a notecard application to help organize writing projects. I called it Miss Lonelynotes in honor of Nathanael West’s Miss Lonelyhearts. Later, with more features and friendly feedback from the research community, I pushed the program into what became called SuperNotecard.

Jump forward to 2014 and the computer landscape has dramatically changed. Just as writers abandoned their typewriters, they have stretched beyond desktop computers and found new platforms for doing their craft—platforms that fit in purses, join them on the couch or sit on their laps. This change inspired the re-write of SuperNotecard to work on all of these platforms. I invite you to explore the result of this effort and create a free SuperNotecard account.

Answers to Very Important Questions

Are you planning to update the installed version of SuperNotecard and SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting?

No. SuperNotecard and SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting were written in a language called Java. Support for Java applications on today’s computers and devices has decreased, complicating the growth, evolution and support of SuperNotecard. Based upon this change we decided to move away from Java and build a product that works easily on lots of devices and in almost all computer environments.

Can we still use the desktop versions of SuperNotecard?

Yes. And you can easily import your work into the new, online version. Support for snc project files will be ongoing. Be aware that you cannot export a file from the online version of SuperNotecard and import it directly into the desktop versions of SuperNotecard.
