1. What is glunote
glunote stores and retrieves notes for you, using Twitter and the web.

2. How do I sign up to glunote
There are two options:
a. The Super Easy Option
Just log into Twitter and follow "glu". (how do I follow glu) In a few moments glu will follow you back and send you a welcome message and you're ready to go. That's it, see, super easy!

b. The Easy Option
Just log in here using your Twitter account. We use Twitters oAuth so you never have to tell us your password. Your account will now be set to follow glu and glu will follow you back, and you're ready to go. That's it, easy!

3. How do I add notes
You can add notes directly from Twitter by sending a direct message to glu. We capture that message and save it for you. For example, say you found a great place for discount socks, you could do the following in Twitter

d glu discount socks can be found at http://www.cheapsox.com

We'd capture that note and keep it for you.

You can also use the glunote website. Just log in using your Twitter account and you'll be taken directly to your notes. The first note in your list is special. It says "click me to add a note". Do as it says and no one gets hurt.

4. How do I search for notes
To search your notes using Twitter send a direct message to glu with your search terms prefixed by a question mark (? = the glu search command). For example, say you needed to retrieve your note about discount socks, you'd type the following into Twitter

d glu ? discount socks

We'll then search all your notes for the terms "discount socks" and send back the notes that match as direct messages to your Twitter account. If we find more than one match we'll send you a direct message that contains the best match and another that contains a link to a page that contains all your sock notes (are you obsessed with socks or what?).

You can also come to the glunote website and use the "search" feature to search your notes - you'll need to be logged in to do this.

5. Can I edit my notes?
Sure can, but only through the web site. Just select the note you want to edit, click on it and you can edit it right there. Easy.

6. Is that it? Is that all you do?!!
Yep, that's it for the time being.

7. How do I follow glu on Twitter
a. Log into Twitter (http://www.twitter.com). If you don't have a Twitter account you'll need to create one.
b. Select the "Find People" link from the menu in the top right hand corner of the page.
c. Enter glu into the "Who are you looking for?" text box and click the Search button.
d. You'll see a list of Twitter users. Look down the list and find the entry with "glu" as the first name. It should read

    glu glunote

Click the Follow button next to that user.
e. The display should now change and the Follow button will be replaced with the word Following. You're now following glu. In a few minutes glu will follow you back and send you a direct message welcoming you to glunote.
