Meta Question

Do you ever write down a question you think of during the day to ask later when you're not near a computer?

Asked by TitsMcGhee (8255points) March 11th, 2009

Or am I just a little bit of a nerd? If you do, are you brave enough to admit it? I know I am.

I feel weird when I ask questions, so I just forget everything. Writing them down sounds like a good idea.

No, but I should. I always forget the ones I think of!

Whenever I get a question, i ask later when im NEAR a computer… i don’t see the point of asking when you’re away from it. lol

I use my phones notes feature and posts the question to my standby screen. Or ill send a text message to my email so when I get home I can look whatever I’d like up.

But in theory, yes i do.

@bluedoggiant: That sentence did have some bad grammar, I know – I just couldn’t rephrase it better. (Except I’ve just thought of the perfect thing. DAMMIT.)

I use Kwiry. I can’t say enough good things about it. I simply text whatever I want to remember to the number, and it pops up in my email inbox when I sit down later that day.

I always leave a draft on my phone when I think of a question to ask while I’m not near a computer.

I usually delete about 75% of them because they were drafted while drinking.

No, but that’s a good idea!

No. I wish I had. I’ve probably lost dozens of good questions because I think of them away from the computer. I’ve been trying to train myself to remember them using various mnemonic devices. If I can remember the subject, I can remember the question. I suppose I could phone them in, if I wanted to bother. However, there is that limit on the number of characters, and my questions never seem to fit.

That’s the beauty of the iPhone. I’m never away from my “computer.”

@AstroChuck – FINALLY I’m getting one of those puppies next week! Strike while the contract is up!

@AstroChuck I have the iPhone too and still can’t remember to ask a question when I think of it.

Then again, I can’t even remember to take my ginkgo biloba.

I have a notebook I use for work (occasionally) and I write Q’s in it from time to time then alter I screen ‘em to see if they’re still worth posting. Most aren’t but ya never know.

I HAVE to write ‘em down or I won’t remember 1 minute later, literally. My short-term memory is totally fucked.

I have done this on a few occasions and I certainly don’t think you’re a nerd, @TitsMcGhee. Then there are the times when I think of a question while driving somewhere but can’t write it down until I get to my destination and by that time, I’ve forgotten what it was. I hate when that happens. And I hate my short term memory and/or short attention span that causes that to happen too!

I have a little green notepad where I write down anything that comes at me during the day that I want to remember, or look into later. I’ve been doing this since pre-Fluther times.

My questions are usually things that Google can answer though, so it’s rare that I’ll ask Fluther one of them.
