Press Release: Personal Knowbase® Version 3.0

For Immediate Release

Personal Knowbase Note Database Software
Handles Large Amounts of Information Easily

Pinole, California, October 18, 2005 -- Bitsmith Software has released Personal Knowbase version 3.0, a Windows application for managing free-format information. Personal Knowbase is a note management system that makes it easy to control the large amounts of information that cross our desks -- and our computers -- every day.

Personal Knowbase's intuitive keyword-based system organizes notes in a natural way without a complex interface. Using keywords gives you more control over how you store and retrieve your notes. Because you can assign any number of keywords to each note, your information is never forced into a single category as it is with tree-based systems.

Personal Knowbase is a serious note management database, beneficial to researchers and other users with lots of information to organize. Unlike tree-based systems, in which large numbers of notes become difficult to navigate as category trees become deeper and deeper, Personal Knowbase's system handles thousands, or even tens of thousands, of notes as easily as a few. By using keywords to filter notes all at one level, you can retrieve related data together and keep important information at your fingertips. Combining keywords in queries using logical operators such as AND, OR, and NOT, you can precisely pinpoint the information that you need.

The new release has an updated look and adds many new features which were requested by users. Dragging any block of text from other Windows software directly into Personal Knowbase's main window now automatically creates a new note with that text.

Personal Knowbase 3.0 includes password protection for added security. Users can now feel safe in storing private information such as account passwords, financial information, diaries, and confidential notes. You can set a password for an entire data file or only for selected notes.

The new version also includes hypertext linking from note text. You can link any arbitrary text in a note to any target Internet address or a local disk file or folder, allowing for handy access to external resources. You can also create hypertext links to other Personal Knowbase notes, making it straightforward to cross-reference your stored materials.

Personal Knowbase 3.0 costs $39.95 for a single-user license and runs on Windows 98/Me/2000/XP. Volume discounts are available. A fully functional 30-day trial of Personal Knowbase is available at For more information, contact Bitsmith Software, P.O. Box 84, Pinole, CA 94564-0084, USA. E-mail: Web:
