Thanks for posting that about PPLandry
and his interest in Lotus Agenda - and that it may relative to IQ.
I shall follow the link you give: http://www.sqlnotes....ndex.php?q=node/2921
By the way, regarding:
- I kept monitoring progress on that front:
The site will soon host a blog to record progress and observations, and will serve as the gateway to a private project site for contributors (including test users) to the effort.
If you’d like to follow the progress of this project, you are invited to subscribe to the blog and comment on our observations.
- but there was no apparent development after that. Then the guy posted that there had been a serious illness in the family, or something, and that he was going to have to put everything on hold and deal with that.
Nothing further happened after that (I had subscribed to the blog in my feed-reader), and the link to site, and all its links, appear to be dead.
My own feeling is that, with the best will in the world, understanding some of this arguably brilliant software - such as (say) Lotus Agenda or GrandView - so that you can see how it ticks and then try to replicate that functionality, is likely to end up in the "too hard" basket, and people might just opt or prefer to take an easier path and invent a new mousetrap, rather than seek to build on one that is already pretty good.
I mentioned in the post DiviFile from Qnomad - Mini-review
how DiviFile had Faceted Classification
, which is what Lotus Agenda had, but with some rather clever (and useful) twists.
The DiviFile developer emailed me later to say that he was busy focussed on some other project, so I got the impression that DiviFile will probably be unlikely to undergo much change in the short term. I'd be interested to know what he's working on now.
