I too would like a quick way of getting to my pad. I've tried to find a way of adding a link to it from my Personal Nodelet, but the best I have come up with a link to the scratch pad viewer. It's quicker than homenode/edit user details, but a way of placing a direct link would be useful.
Update:Ok. Now I've spoken publicly, I worked out that if I check the "modify personal nodelet" checkbox and type "[pad://BrowserUk|My pad]" into the "add" edit box, click "Submit", I get what I wanted.
Update to update: It doesn't work. I swear it did, but now it doesn't. Maybe I am simply dillusional.
Anyone know of an abbottoire going cheap?
