ZenR Notes: Simple Password Protected Notes

ZenR Notes (version: 0.2) is a recent entry in the note taking category. It presents mostly simple options for taking notes and securing them either individually or with a master password.

In the recent past have been concentrating on other things, including maintaining the Milan (the football/soccer team) site, linked on the site’s front page if anybody cares.

Perhaps it is time to return and post occasional reviews again. Maybe. If time allows. If so also consider changing the looks or theme of the site too.
