Note256 features modern online notepad with a strong client-side encryption. An everyday tech tool.
Here's the story. As developers, we've constantly been working with some kind of credential data mess: host configurations, deployment options, backup copies of certificate keys, & so on. Then, we need it all to be privately available online - to share with colleagues, client tech admins or those freelance guys.
What is the way all this data is being stored in a real-world process, 95% of cases? Sad but true, I tell you: something in a plain text file on a host; [or] inside dropbox/gdocs shared doc; [or] even buried into an email archive ("I had sent you the SSH pass few months ago"). This can not be considered a secure approach by any means.
And what is «secure» in our cloud-era? It should mean that no authorized third party can physically access your data, even the storage host itself. We've seen stories where a bad guy or a malware code gained root access to servers and was able to bypass the «outside» security measures - because, you know, it's a root. Data can be considered secure if it's accessible on authenticated client premise ONLY - which means, an industry-grade client security endpoint has to be implemented in your browser. So we did it.
Just in case you missed the magic button:
We had added PWAT because we basically want to get new users and some buzz at this point. The service now features no ads at all, no hidden/paid features, everything is accessible right now «as is» for everyone, so a small tweet looks fair.

Hold on a sec. We're about to implement some ideas with a payment basis, but surely not now.
If you're using note256 more than a week and got ideas, drop us a word here:
«Y U NO do anonymity?»
1. Because we care about your data and it's integrity. Finding all your data under one consistent protected realm is a part of complex secure approach.
2. Because security through obscurity is a flaw, like «no one knows my url so they cannot find anything». It just doesn't work.
3. There already are too many pastebin-like services which don't serve our needs.
