So yesterday (trust me, it was yesterday from my point of view) I created an application called notely (github). I've just finished creating the sync component of the notely software. You can now "pair" your notely instance with another notely instance and sync it by typing "notely sync". The notely server is a tiny python app which I plan to blog a little about the construction of at some time in the future. It's hosted on heroku because heroku's cool. You can get the source here: github

edit 23:36:10 UTC+1: there was an error which has now been fixed.
