How do you organize your recipes?

I have many recipes: from books, magazines, friends and of my own creation. Some are handwritten, some printed on computers, some photocopied, some are still in books or magazines. It's becoming a bit of a problem as the years move on as to where I found a recipe or where it is now kept. I have many years of cooking magazines and hundreds of cookbooks. I waste a lot of time trying to find something I've liked in a magazine, or book etc.

I'm thinking of using a program such as "Cook's Palate" and possibly making a book out of all of the recipes. Perhaps I should simply create an index and leave the various sources where they currently live. I love the scribbled, memory stained recipe cards but the grease stains and fading ball point sometimes makes life difficult.

So how do you Home-Cooking-Hounds manage? I'd love to hear some of your ideas.
