I think I've used up all my credit as far as the first suggestion is concerned, and I rather think the local library has other priorities (probably survival, given the cutbacks that are on the horizon in the UK). But perhaps later in the year ...
I haven't looked too far into Tinderbox yet, but I find myself wondering if new users might benefit from a kind of "library" of useful items. I don't mean the already existing downloads on their site, which have complete projects for GTD, and so forth (those are perhaps too big for the complete newcomer). I was thinking more along the lines of a library of "building blocks" that people could look at and adapt to their own needs. Even just a set of ready-made adornments might be handy. This may be rubbish -- I'm just thinking out loud -- but I wouldn't say no to a few lego bricks I could use. Ioa's chunks of code are exactly the sort of thing I mean.
Thanks to everyone for the tips and ideas already put forward. Very useful.
