I've found a really good free mind mapping program and thought I'd pass it on: It's called 'Free Mind' (http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page)

I've only scratched the surface of it, but I like what it does so far, particularly in that you barely need to use the mouse.

looks promising - and free is almost always a good price :)

I've been using FreeMind for a while, it's absolutely fantastic.

Freemind is excellent. I started using it I don't know maybe a year ago to put together a bunch of information for my game world. It's pretty amazing really.

If you are into writing anything you might want to check out yWriter5 (http://www.spacejock.com/yWriter5.html?yWriter5) as well. It is also free.

It is possible there is something better out there but these are the two things I used when I attempted the Nanowrimo challenge last year. That just turned out to be one too many hobbies for me I think.

You might also want to look at mapul.com and bubbl.us. I haven't been to bubbl.us in awhile but I have an account there and I liked its ease of use.

Also, Jaxilon - you can never have too many hobbies, just too many active hobbies.
