I use KOrganizer for appointments, to-do lists, and to schedule recurring events. I use KeepNote for general note-taking, scratch pad, and temporary paste-bin. I use notepads and pencils for drawing, shopping lists, doodling, and so on. I use post-it notes for very short term reminders that I want to stick somewhere appropriate.

Because syncing back to my laptop is a pain, I've tried a few syncing tools but none work well.

I finally abandoned my Day-Timer two years ago in favor of the calendar in my phone, since I would forget my Day-Timer, but never my phone.

Nothing sensitive ever goes on my calendar.

You are far too organised.

I use the calendar on the cupboard door above the kitchen counter. No need to switch anything on, and I see it first thing ever morning as I open the cupboard for the loaf. KISS!

The simplest methods are the best.

Interesting that simple method cannot replace an iphone, palm or smartphone

But if you are using a corkboard, why not adding on it a priority list or areas which given priorities (high, ...low)

True, electronic and software based planners have advantages over old traditions of paper and ink but that's just me.

However, I do own an android phone for other tasks.

Diary with a page a day for actual teaching in class work. Diary with a week over 2 pages for everything else. The small diary stays at home by the telephone, the large diary stays with me.

I want to apologized for stretching the truth. I did use paper and ink mostly in the past when keeping notes and such but I seldom do.

The truth is I use my android phone for that now. :/

I am not so sure. I am much more efficient with a Quo Vadis President Really over any digital planners on smartphones (iphone).

I used to use emacs' org-mode. I'm using 'remember the milk' because mostly I have my lists on mobile devices. If I were working / planning from one computer all the time, it'd have to be org-mode. I am yet to see a better piece software than org-mode is.

I do use pen and paper as well.

For large projects, are you using Gantt or some planification tools?

You may use MS project for instance.

Yes, I remember using something like that for some projects a few years back but it was created by someone else (in Excel!)
