Circus Ponies' NoteBook and 'Getting Things Done'

I have just started, or at least, just tried to start to use the Getting Things Done way. I would like to implement Circus Ponies' NoteBook application. I have read quite a bit of 43Folders and have followed the NoteBook and 'Getting Things Done'*forum on the Circus Ponies' website. I think I got the concept down, however, I am not a hundred percent right that I am doing everything right. Is there a template on the 43Folders website that I could import into NoteBook that could help me out?

It's in there!

I believe there is a GTD template included in the download after version 2. I have used a modified version for a little while now, and it works well. I use a combination of keywords and pages to cross-link context and projects for my NAs.

There is a bug in the display of the todo index when your todo items are imported from the Services menu, but Jayson knows about it, and I think it's on the list to get fixed.

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. »
