    I would like know if there was a way to do this on the PC. I don't mind mailing to my gmail, but if there is a way, I'd like to know!

    Your answer is no.

    The notes are decrypted into some crazy language, unfortunately...

    I knew the answer to this because I also wanted to do the same thing a couple weeks back.

    They're stored in a database on the touch.

    I was poking around Erica Sadun's site (she of the wonderful command line utilities) and found she had written a database dumper, so its possible to get them from the command line.

    Lemme see if I can find it...

    Ah yeah...

    Noteit. There is a big hairy warning about using these on the touch, but...

    I just downloaded it, copied it to /usr/bin, chmod a+x it, and

    Code:
    # noteit   
    noteit: options 
    -l                list existing notes
    -c                count the number of existing notes
    -d number         delete note by number
    -a title note...  add notes with the given title
    -n note...        add notes with the default title
    
    # noteit -l
    1: 196<div>128av HRT 1.95mi 250+cal</div><div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div><div>Pull 70</div><div>Leg 80</div><div>Curl 45</div><div>Crunch 45</div><div>Pecs 45</div><div>Press 70</div><div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div><div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div>
    2: 195<div>276 cal</div><div>1.96 mi</div>
    3: 2mi <div>284 cal</div>
    4: 193<div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div>
    Total notes: 4
    # noteit -a testing "this is a test of a note it may work!"
    Adding Note: this is a test of a note it may work!
    # noteit -l
    1: 196<div>128av HRT 1.95mi 250+cal</div><div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div><div>Pull 70</div><div>Leg 80</div><div>Curl 45</div><div>Crunch 45</div><div>Pecs 45</div><div>Press 70</div><div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div><div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div>
    2: 195<div>276 cal</div><div>1.96 mi</div>
    3: 2mi <div>284 cal</div>
    4: 193<div><br class="webkit-block-placeholder"></div>
    5: this is a test of a note it may work!
    Total notes: 5
    # noteit -l | grep ^2:
    2: 195<div>276 cal</div><div>1.96 mi</div>
    
    Seems to work fine!

    So, if you ssh in to your touch, put noteit on it, then you can dump notes in a terminal window and copy them out that way.

    You can combine with her sendFileByMail app in the Utilities package to do fun stuff like this

    Code:
    # noteit -l | grep ^2: > /tmp/msg; /var/root/bin/sendFileByMail /tmp/msg
    # rm /tmp/msg
    
    Note that the first line will open a new email message with file attached... fill in the to field, send, then do the rm command in the shell.

    However, thats a lot more work then just dumping the note, then copying it out of the window

    EDIT : Uh... yeah. None of this works with 1.1.3 - works great with 1.1.2 jailbroken, where you can get in via ssh, install stuff, you know. Sorry. No, there is no way in 1.1.3 (yet) to do this.

    Sheesh.

    too much shell stuff there? My bad. I'm a unix guy, it's what makes the iphone/touch so interesting (and frustrating... why in HELL would apple lock this down? can't we just sign a waiver that we won't cry to apple if we bork our machines and then get them unlocked? )

    why dont you just email it to your self? If you have notes you most likely have mail.app. there is an option in notes where you can email it to yourself.
