Someone mentioned yesterday an old "truism" that you have to choose any two of "work, family and friends". I know you don't have to, but it takes a bit more time-management than I've been applying lately.
So, I finally got the "get a calendar and todo list started" task off the todo list. Started off by adding the various OLPC presentations, meetings and talks for the month to it. It looks a lot less daunting when it's just 6 little boxes surrounded by all that "free" space. Of course, a couple of those boxes are actually whole-day events, but oh well, it's still psychologically comforting.
Lightning (a Thunderbird plugin to do todo/calendar stuff) is okay, but it's got a few minor issues in workflow/usability (e.g. you can't AFAICS make the default calendar view a "monthly" view, and you can't publish your calendar via ssh/scp/sftp or the like in order to share it with yourself (or the world)). Storing in the existing IMAP server would be a lot more convenient, actually, but that's probably asking too much.
Need to start putting company stuff in too, there's a few must-be-done-ASAP things that have (due to notice being delayed by the move) gone very stale. Must deal with those tonight, but the rest of it all needs to start getting tracked properly so that I can have time for both family and friends, after all, that's the point of the business.
