I need fast local storage for tiny snipits of code.  I need to keep the code organized, make detailed comments, search, etc.  Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If Notepad is almost perfect, look at Ultra Edit. It is one of the world's best text editors and unlike many editors:

1. It can edit in columns (insert a column for example)
2. It is disk based so can edit very (very) large files
3. It can edit multiple files simultanously
4. It has a programming mode to assist with code.

It is certainly local. .... Thinkpads_User

I think this is probably not quite what you're looking for, but figure it's worth pointing out that Visual Studio has a built-in mechanism for creating/using code snippets: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms165392(v=VS.100).aspx

Online isn't fast enough.  Notepad is almost the perfect solution but I have too much code at this point.

Will it store all your code in one place?  I am not seeing that?  If so, it certainly seems like the best option.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "one" place.

You could have one physical file (I would find that unweildy).
You can have multiple tabs (each tab is a file) - but all the files could be in one folder.
You can organize in projects - I like that idea.

It comes with a free trial, and the trial is full function.

I have it for other reasons, but it has been a replacement for notepad for me for nearly a decade. I wound up paying a one-time fee for permanent upgrades.

try microsoft onenote, i use it and will not move to any other application even for a million dollars.

storage in one file, multi-tier hierarchies, easy invocation with "Winkey+N", global search, full feature formatting - just try it out
