Awesome, thanks!

Yeah, that's a really good point.  Also, we could make the default
note type thing that appears a bit more clear about *how* to sync your
notes in.

Could you file a bug for this?

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes! :-)

Based on user feedback, our initial focus in that arena will be on a
great mobile experience.  To that end, I'm working on an HTML5
offline-capable UI, Leon is working on a markdown editor for notes,
Jeff has written delete support, and Jeff #2 and Sander have been
mocking up UI ideas related to tagging.  Of course, this UI would work
in modern desktop browsers as well, but we will eventually want to
provide a better experience for big screens.

Rich text editing is an unknown right now...we may stick with markdown
for some time.

One of our major goals of the Snowy Hackfest is to nail down all of
this stuff, and hopefully deploy an early version to Tomboy Online in
November (but don't hold us to that fictitious deadline).

Thank you dude, glad to have you on board.
