Tracks::GTD who's using it?

I came to read this forum to get ideas before starting a Ruby on Rails (a web development system) project to do 43 folders.

I found in nearly the last post I read a reference to Tracks::GTD (http://www.rousette.org.uk/projects/).

Being a Ruby on Rails app, you can just install Ruby, then Rails on your computer (Windows, Linux, OSX...) and in a few minutes have Tracks running.

It looks good to me so far.

Who else is using it? any comments or pointers?

I'm using it. After...

I'm using it. After a little configuring, it worked well for me. It's a great app if you take your laptop with you, or sit at the computer for most of your work. As a Computer Science student, I found it very useful. It's a little cumbersome though when you need to look up something to tell someone, because you have to boot up your machine. Also, some non-cs teachers don't like laptops being always on during class, or you typing a lot.

I actually no longer use Tracks as I've found it just not realistic for me to have my laptop with me all the time.

But I will say it's the best app I used for GTD that is available on linux. Have you checked out php-gtd? That project is getting pretty cool.

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. »
