Most researchers keep a research journal where we note down our musings, notes and so on. While a paper diary is still quite common, I'd really prefer something on my laptop/computer. There are various applications out there for journal writing, but none of them really match up to good old LaTeX. I've written a simple script that makes it really easy to maintain a journal using LaTeX - Calliope.
