How to scrub Outlook clean post-DavidCo?

I think after I removed the David Allen outlook add-in because I didn't like it enough to pay money for it (on the one Windows machine I have in my life, at the office, in a drawer) it left a bunch of cruft that gets in the way in Outlook.

When I go into Tasks in Outlook 2003? I have a bunch of saved views and such off to the side that I cannot get rid of. I don't know where the heck they live, and I even installed GTD Outlook stuff again thinking I uninstalled it wrong.

If I'm talking crazy I'll post a screenshot, I don't have it handy.

You're not talking crazy emory,...

You're not talking crazy emory, I had exactly the same problem.

To remove the GTD views from Tasks, go to
View->Arrange By->Current View->Define Views

This brings up the Custom Views Organizer. You can delete all the views you no longer want from there.

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. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
