I love Personal Brain, but the one thing that could make me switch back to OneNote is the lack of ability to password protect thoughts.  Currently, I am running it off of a USB drive, using TrueCrypt to protect it.  This creates major performance issues though. 

Another feature that I very much liked about OneNote that Personal Brain does not have is the ability to work on a locally cached version, and have it sync when the main notebook is online.

Password protection of thoughts has been requested many times.  I think I even asked about it during version 1.   Look at this thread:  http://forums.thebrain.com/post?id=1964537&highlight=password

Off topic, but another app has the same lack, keepass.  It protects only the passwords and the db, but not other fields.  Hmmm, perhaps this is a software antipattern.

No encryption?? Without it, Brain is just a pretty children's toy.

Check out http://www.truecrypt.org for your security needs. There are also numerous other third party solutions available until the PB team can get to it on the long feature request list.

PB is great for kids too

With respect -- there is no long list, only a list with one member (encryption); members here say TrueCrypt means a performance hit. Brain simply can't be expected to be taken seriously without built-in security. Otherwise you're just cataloging your Barbie wardrobe.

Actually there are many feature requests still in the queue (http://thebrain.uservoice.com/). If there is a perforamnce hit with TC i've not noticed it even on a very large partition (I had compared with a non encrypted dataset once), though it is of course possible. You may be burdening yourself with limiting assumptions here; perhaps if you try it for yourself you can make your own mind up

LOLx2!

OK, you have a point. But the description of TC suggests it is at least unwieldy compared with the effortless and selective encryption enjoyed by, say, OneNote.  The "long list" of improvements necessarily contains only "encryption" until the authors provide it: Without security built-in, Brain is a Sopwith Camel compared to OneNote's F-16; everything else on the wish list is secondary to that one absent feature.

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I should structure my Barbie wardrobe data?
I'd like to be able to sort by release date, as well as cross reference:
- Venues with proper attire (wouldn't want Barbie going horseback riding in an evening dress)
- Color matching
- Storage location (for quick retrieval)

If possible, I'd also like to mark if the apparel is appropriate for Star Wars crossovers.
