comment As a programmer, what would you use a personal Wiki for?
@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner I've done something similar to what stijn has said, but I used a personal wiki (tiddlywiki) for quick jotting down of notes, and then if it is a situation I felt like could benefit co-workers, I would clean it up and add it to the company wiki

comment Is there a way to combat Sales perpetually overcommitting?
I will add that while this works, you want to minimize the damage this can cause the client relation. As soon as you get an unreasonable deadline, you need to be upfront and let the salesperson know that it just isn't going to happen, so they can deal with the client accordingly.
