How do you organize your notes?

Hi all,

I'm working on a couple of projects for which I have been gathering information and requirements for a few years, and as such have a fairly overwhelming amount of info that needs to be compiled and organized. Wondering if any of you have suggestions for software or processes that you use to organize large quantities of notes/feedback.
