Re: Bento

Haven't tried it. I'm a bit miffed that they do not offer a lower upgrade price for owners of the previous version... of which I am one. Sure $50 isn't so much to spend on software, it's just the principle of the matter. Doesn't seem like a caring way to treat existing customers, and that makes me s...

They're designed to be worn from mid-August to late September while you slip into second place. No, third... Whoops, fourth place.

Hmmm. Apparently you've been sleeping the past fives years.

Re: Taking stock

Curio 5.0 (perhaps the single best application I've seen on any platform) I haven't got Curio. Last time I looked at it, it was basically a mind map app (as far as I can remember), and since I already own NovaMind and never make mind maps, Curio has never been on my wish list. But after reading Ver...

Re: Scrivener as a GTD-manager?

Amber, Based on your comments about Taskpaper from another thread I downloaded the program. It is, indeed, a nice, simple application. It seems as if it would also be a good application for notetaking, especially in a meeting... Like you, I am cross-platform and I'm curious about how the PC version,...

Re: Poll: What's your favorite GTD/task/to-do list manager?

Before answering this question, I need to frankly state that I rarely use a task manager or to-do list. My own work style just doesn't seem to mesh with a rigid system, which I basically find tedious and uninspiring. However, I do sometimes like to sketch out an action plan for a project. Curio is e...

Re: Marketing Usage?

Mary, I am the marketing director for a small publisher in Vermont, so I have some experience with both Srivener and marketing campaigns (although, for full disclosure I have to acknowledge that at the office we use PCs -- where, by the way, I find OneNote quite useful). You might find Scrivener use...

Re: Looking to organise

I am relatively new to Macs, having gotten my MacBook last April. I bought DevonThink because it seems to be the consensus choice as the most powerful notes/information manager... which it clearly is. However, I find I rarely use it, instead relying more on Journler (http://www.journler.com) (yes, i...

Re: This Summer's Movies

When I lived in Burlington (that's the "big" city here in Vermont), I used to see a movie a week. But now that I live in a rural area and the nearest theatre is 30 minutes drive, I don't get out much. I have seen The Dark Knight and thought it was pretty good, if rather preposterous... eve...

Re: A note on pretty design

I am not sure why anyone would base their purchasing decision on the attractiveness of the web site, and not on the quality of the software. In small operations, I'd rather have the developers working on improving the software and not on fine tuning their web site. Admittedly, if the web site has ma...
