If you try and search within the Google Notebook interface you only get 1,580 results.

The queries I tried were as follows:

google.com/notebook/search?q=* ...
google.com/notebook/search?q=* ...

The total results seem to alternate between 1,580 and 1,060. Anyone care for an explanation?

David: Unfortunetaly not, I don´t know the author. For long time I thought that it´s from Monty Pythons, but that objectively not true. I found it by chance few days ago – I remembered it from my English lesson at school. :-)

Philipp, you should know better than to quote the estimated number of results the first page of serps gives as being the true number.

That "about 19200" drops to 601 if you try working through the serps page by page, and even if you select to include duplicates, it only adds another 28 duplicates back in, giving 629 in total.

I notice also that if you go to the notebook search page (at google.com/notebook/search?q=g ...) when you are not logged in, and then try and do another search, the page fails to work at all since it gets a javascript error.

Interesting. I have a public notebook but searches for terms that are in it find nothing.

I'm absolutely loving notebook at the moment. I'm using it to organise my revision note for my final exams at the moment and it seems to be working very well. Now I just share my notes to my friends, pretty handy.

Mine is here by the way: google.com/notebook/public/094 ...

Just so you know "copy pasta" is an in-joke between me and some freinds. It refers to copy pasting stuff into your coursework as the easy way out.

Few problems, I'm a bit dissapointed about the support (or lack of) for Opera. Opera can have widgets too! That lack of support is accross the board actually, some of their services (like gmail) are lacking some key features in Opera, real shame.

I wish they would allow you to add bullet points or numbered points into the text area. For notetaking this is a nice way to separate out each point. I know they separate each note with a bullet point but individual points within a note would be good too.

The weird thing is that they allow you to paste in bullet points but not add any.

I'm still finding problems. I'm not sure if this is a browser specific issue or something but if I have some text separated by a few line breaks and then more text then the second bunch of text keeps moving up if i press the backspace button to remove a character.

This only seems to happen if there are many lines between the two paragraphs of text and stops once the distance is exactly one line break.

Also a good feature would be inline spell check.

You can "Note this" what is already on a Google Notebook, funny isn't it.

Reminds me of the golden ratio:
