Ive created a timer job and a application page so i can set some custom values that the timer job uses. Im currently storing the values in the hastable so that the timer job can access them. The data levels are low so i dont think this will be a problem, but im confused about whether to use the properties hashtable or the propertybag. Can someone give me a quick heads up on the differences.

The SPFarm.Properties hashtable is sometimes referred to as the Property Bag as well (e.g. the Property Bag Settings tool is just a UI for the .Properties collection). So unless you are referring to something different, they are the same thing.
