Working offline with notes/outliners

(Yes, offline, in my own computer. No webtwopointoh extravaganza.)
Anyone of you lifehackers who have any experince using this kind of software. Any recommendations?

I have been trying a couple of softwares for handling my GTD lists, projects, notes and other bits and pieces I find on the web. Something that can handle the various types of data, and produce nice printouts/exports when I need too present the status of my various projects.

TaoNotes was nice but would be even more useful if it had a proper documentation. It is also a bit bloated since it tries to be several things at once. ConnectedText is really good, but I want HTML support. Its not enough with Wiki markup. I am currently using UltraRecall which so far has met my expectations. It also has an open data structure, so I for could for example add a "@Context" field to my Tasks.

So, any other recomendations?

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. »
