Thank you for the tips, Lex, but it basically means I've lost all my notes, doesn't it? Unfortunately, I don't have a recent backup :(
Unless you can find a copy somewhere I'm afraid, yes, it means you have lost them. I can't criticise, my backups are way behind too.
Anyway, don't you think it is a good idea to change the notes to a separate file instead of a variable in .conf? Of course, I have a separate application for notetaking, but scribble is handy for quick notes while working in Geany.
Storing scribble in a separate file would not make it any less vulnerable, but it would add extra complexity, which that makes everything more vulnerable.
Can I suggest perhaps adding your configuration files - Geany's at a minimum - to a version control repository, whether using git, bazaar or any other modern system? Once you had that done you could also schedule an import of config files perhaps once a day. They'd only be stored locally but at least you could revert to any revision with a minimum of disk space being used.
Another suggestion would be to keep important notes somewhere other then Geany but that doesn't solve the essential nature of the problem.

Thanks, Russell, that's a nice suggestion! But I think what I really need actually is to schedule daily backups of at least my text files to my spare hard disk. I keep my backups there, but only run rsync once a month :p
