Another way of handling todos

Jason Philbrook's picture

Excellent article and topic. I'm always looking for new ways to experiment with keeping atop my tasks.

http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page works well for me. Cross platform was important so I can let windows users update the lists. I use it as a hierarchiel todo manager. Tasks organized by town primarily. someone else might use it tasks sorted by class or customer or however they want.

I put a little crop of mine without any useful information here:

Freemind and mindmapping

Yeah, Freemind is cool! I sometimes use it to capture longer notes. =) By the way, someone's gotten Freemind to work with Emacs Planner...

Bad QuickStart URL

Anonymous's picture

The URL for QuickStart is misspelled, it should be Quick instead of Quck, like this:

http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/PlannerModeQuickStart

You get a page with a header but no content if you use the bad link.

emacswiki.org connection refused

I hope this is a temporary thing, like they took the site down for maintenance. Or perhaps they got lj'd (too popular).
