One solution--albeit one that requires my product: A WorkLife Framework-- is to keep these snippits in the Notebooks subdirectory of one of A WorkLife FrameWork's Diary directories. Then when you choose that Diary, the associated Notebooks Palette http://scientificarts.com/worklife/documentation/notebookspalette.html will have all those snippits notebooks listed automatically and appropriately updated. I hope that this helps... --David A WorkLife FrameWork E x t e n d i n g MATHEMATICA's Reach...
