Need help choosing Journal/Diary software!!

Hi all,
as well as being a computer dabbler, I am also a writer, and since switching from Windows, I have been using Lifeograph, which is a neat little program.

However, my needs are such now, that I am in need of something portable and cross-platform capable, for a whole bunch of reasons.

Basically, I need something that does the job of Lifeograph, or David RM's The Journal, but it needs to be useable from a USB stick in both Windows and Linux.

Does anybody have any suggestions?? I would be most grateful. I know it seems I want the moon on a stick, but i have my reasons. It does not have to be free/open source either. I am happy to pay, so long as it does the job.

Thank you all.

I don't think this has encryption, but you may find RedNotebook meets your other needs. It is written in Python, so you can install Python and RedNotebook together on a USB stick. I suppose you would need separate Python runtimes for Windows and Linux, but one copy of RedNotebook should work for either runtime.

Incidentally, it uses txt2tags as a back end formatting tool. (Txt2tags is also written in Python.) So it also supports a number of output formats, including LaTeX, various wiki markup languages, HTML, and other targets.
