Almost all of my scheduling is done using PIMple. It handles my class
schedule and meetings, gives me a great at-a-glance list of where to go
today. For days when I have exams,. test, or assignments due, I set those
up as events and then outline the days in PIMple with an oval - so just by
looking at its calendar I can see when I have to get my ass in gear :)

One-time things like this I usually write down in the Avi's BD scribble
area. Right now, I've got some ideas for Newton software scribbled down
there, a reminder to change my NuShield (that's been there for weeks :), a
measurment for a poster frame, etc etc. When I do something, I scrub it
off. Liek when I get around to e-mailing Way Chung-Wong about this bug I
found in PIMple, I'll scrub that off :)
