Going back to paper, with regret and hope
After three years of using electronic solutions, mostly Things by Cultured Code on my iPhone and my Macs and BusyCal on the latter, I have decided to give up electrons and go back to paper for both my agenda and my to do lists. Though I actually loved using electronic tools, I now have to admit defeat in the face of synchronization. Things synchronizes well between my phone and one computer, but not two. Further, iCal no longer plays has nicely with BusyCal, now that the synchronization happens through iCloud rather then WebDav. Going back to WebDav is not an option, because it does not work as well as it used to and, again, I have two computers and a phone. I have seen appointments disappear before my eyes rather on one computer rather than being added to the other. The ease and cool factor of electronics are not worth the aggravation.
So it's back to paper for me.
I will be printing the pages from Ygor's wonderful Dynamic Templates later today, using the department's laser printer (ha!), and will punch them circa style. I have chosen the Moleskine-type calendar and notes model, which I love and find most flexible. I have also decided I will not be using my Levenger leather cover, because I find it heavy and cumbersome. I will rather use the lighter Levenger plastic covers, or maybe I will print nice coloured covers and laminate them using my brand new heat laminator.
