I also find doing it on the computer better for archiving, my electronic 
filing is much better than my paper filing.  I've basically adopted the 
practice of throwing anything on paper away and only storing files.

I've always used Dia.  For UML there is a UML set of controls in the 
bottom area, they do almost everything I need.
