A software and stick note

I always thought countable use of software was limited to non-native
English speakers, but yesterday a friend used it twice in an e-mail and
then verbally in a follow-up phone call.

He was also telling me about stick notes the other day. Sure enough, he
meant Post-Its, or stickies as I would normally call them. Even sticky
notes, but stick notes...

He lives in DC, and has lived in San Francisco and Texas in the past.
