A few little things

Version r77. Let me see if I can remember:
  • Added InstantTimestampPlugin
  • Added CalendarPlugin from tiddlytools.com and added a calendar
  • Moved palette selector to the config tiddler
  • Fixed the single quote bug so you can have a single quote in your titles now (but round bracket bug remains)
  • Allow semi-colon (;) as a substitute for pipe (|) in the quick add projects/actions box (aka Process Inbox) since pipe is hard to type in some parts of the world.
  • New waiting for action in projects wasn't working right
  • Added some print styles to hide stuff you probably don't want to print (thanks Andrew C for these)
I think that's it. To update you need to fetch DashboardsAndPanels MonkeyGTDPlugin Config PageTemplate CalendarPlugin MonkeyGTDStyles InstantTimestampPlugin MonkeyGTDVersion (but there's no harm in fetching everything from http://mgtd-alpha.tiddlyspot.com/upgrade.html. Click continue if you get long running script warnings).

I already was missing the calendar from time to time.

BTW: I seem to have the XMLHttpRequest.open problem, too now.

That's almost strange as I still haven't updated Firefox (1.5 here) and I haven't changed anything...
I believe I have to dig a bit deeper into that behaviour...

I guess the new calendar entries will be integrated with the ticklers in the near future?

Great updates, as usual. Not quite sure I get the calendar as I use other calendars. I would love it if you could set recurring ticklers.

Additionally, I like putting this code in my print print css so I only get the NWStar buttons if they are checked.

.mList .off {display: none;}
.mList .WaitingForButton.off {display: none;}
.mList .NextButton.off {display: none;}

Rock on

Actually I don't use the calendar either but a few people said it was missed so there it is back again. You can remove it from PageTemplate if you don't want it. Re ticklers and calendar integration, maybe but I'm not sure how it would work as yet, so it won't be very near. Scott, thanks for extra css, will include in next update.

schilke, are you using a local file (as opposed to via http, eg tiddlyspot?) could it be due to a firefox plugin?

Please tell me how I can obtain a copy of http://www.checkettsweb.com/tw/gtd_tiddlywiki.htm

the link that says right click here is an empty href with a pound sign and ff will not show a save as context menu.

I am sure GTD would be of significant use. Sorry to put this message where it does not belong. So far I have found no other place.

> schilke, are you using a local file

you mean normally or as a workaround to get the update? - a): no, b): yes, of course...

> could it be due to a firefox plugin

My own suspicion made me checking what exactly I did install since the last upgrade. I found Firebug as the only thing as I haven't touched my Firefox installation much. But it is disabled by default most of the time. The only thing I wasn't able to figure out yet is, what exactly "disabled" means here - believe it could be more "hidden" than really "disabled"...

But that has no priority for me at the moment (and it's a feature not a bug anyway...)

@simon, scott, ... re. ticklers and calendar integration:
I am also not sure what I really need/want/expect. I am using other calendars, too. As mentioned before in GTD TiddlyWiki | Google Groups I am still hoping, that there might be a smart integration with the iCalendar standard - aka "open calendar standard" (as supported by iCal, Mozilla apps, Evolution, Google Calendar...)

> the link that says right click
> here is an empty href with a

> save as context menu.
both isn't true for me...
You could give this link a try and if you don't see any "save as" in your context menu, you either have a customized Firefox version or you're doing something wrong...

Clint's version is most important to all TiddlyWiki variants dealing with GTD. Having said that, you're encouraged to try the others (Clint wouldn't blame me...):

d3 - a "kinkless" GTD system

MonkeyGTD - gtd inspired task manager powered by tiddlywiki

MonkeyGTD 2.1 alpha (preview)

or try one of the first two online by creating an account at tiddlyspot

oh, don't worry - this weblog is not the worst place to post your question.
The best place would be the GTD TiddlyWiki | Google Group

Re Tickler and CalendarPlugin integration:

I use the ReminderMacros from TiddlyTools to add <<reminder day:1 month:2 year:2007 title:"remember this">> to my Ticklers by hand.

It's a kludge but works. Issues:
* I don't think it supports iCal
* It would be nice if the Tickler already contained a reminder with the day, month and year set to the Tickler's date already.

Patching the Tickler code to address the 2nd issue is on one of my Personal Projects, when I'm in Hacking Context, but that's a rare condition for me at the moment... ;-)
