iPod + iCal "hidden tasks" woes

Particularly thanks to Kinkless GTD, I've been regularly syncing my errands and calls contexts to my Sony Ericcson T637, via iCal/iSync. I also sync ALL calendars and todos to my iPod, but alas- it seems to end up with all my todos EVER, whether completed/hidden or not.

I don't really want to delete all old tasks and events- it's nice to have access to them via spotlight sometimes - but a lifetime list of todos on my iPod isn't of much use. :)

Hope to semi-solve this when Ethan @ Kinkless offers a text file output function, where I can sync a note with my current master list.... that ultimately may prove more useful than the normal iPod view of todos anyway, but: anyone managed to sync only the current goodies to their iPod?

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
