It's funny reading all your solutions to noting stuff down. Growing up my dad always had his little spiral bound notebook in his shirt pocket and we would kid him about it. We used to all get these spiral bound notebooks for gifts, and roll our eyes. I didn't know that my dad was onto the original hispster PDA. I should call him and tell him how cool he has become! I guess it worked for him because he managed to make a pretty good living on a low salary, send us to college, start a non-profit environmental group etc. etc. and he's still filling those notebooks. I should turn him onto GTD so that he has something to do with all that info in the notebooks.
