There is something called kjots in kde, but I prefer the zim program.
Zim is called a personal wiki and allows any number of pages with
pretty much any type of text or links on each. It also has searches,
a calendar, and todo items. It doesn't have any type of appointments
or automated reminders. Kjots seems more limited, but that might be
my lack of experience with it. Both have debian packages.
