Sometimes, I don’t see clearly what my own software can do.

I've been trying to sketch rough images of some characters from a hypertext fiction I’ve been playing with. The cast is large, and sometimes I find it hard to keep all the characters straight, and so my cork board of bad paintings helps remind me who’s who.

But I can do this right in Tinderbox. Drop a folder into the badges directory, and fill it with little png thumbnails for the characters. Now, I can badge notes with a face to remind me of the point-of-view character, or simply of who needs work in this scene.

No muss, no fuss, and no big images cluttering the Tinderbox file.
