Is it advisable to get started in OmniFocus with only the iPhone app? I don't want to purchase the Mac app before version two comes out.

I downloaded the Mac app public beta, but it seems like that needs to be reinstalled daily and as a new user I'm not sure if the resources out there to learn OmniFocus (such as David Sparks' screencasts) are applicable to version 2. To be honest, I haven't gone any further than setting up the OmniSync server yet after installing the beta.

Thanks everyone for the wonderful input. I dove in, and am getting my feet wet with Omnifocus 2 for Mac and iPhone.

Hey, Cody, great video, nice music too! Here's my list:

1. Sheath Knife - Right now it's a Mora Classic, but I'd like to get something like a BHK Pathfinder, Cold Steel Trailmaster, or Randall someday
2 Stainless Steel Nalgene Bottle (I prefer this style over a military canteen)
3. Large diameter ferrocerum rod (1/4" or more, bigger than the lil' spark I keep on my keychain)
4. Paracord I usually have a few hanks of it in my EDC bag and can always scavenge it from boot laces or my keychain fob
5. Military-type poncho - good for rain, improvised shelter, gathering stuff like pinecones together, etc.
6. A good axe - I'd love to get a GB or Wetterlings someday, right now I'm still using an old Gerber, but at least it's better quality than the new Gerber junk.
7. Wool blanket - Maybe just because it's Winter, but keeping warm edges out a compass for me right now. Even with a good fire I'd want something to keep the wind out. Wool is better than a military poncho liner around fires and you can wrap it under the poncho somewhat if you need to travel and keep warm.
Alternate 1: Compass - I had a good quality Brunton, but I can't seem to find it after my move. Time for a new one. I also have a basic one on my keychain, and a tiny one in my EDC bag survival kit, but I'd rather have better quality if I have to rely on it.
Alternate 2: Small food kit - mostly stuff like tea, buillion, jerky,hard candy, and a couple of granola bars. Most wilderness survival situations are short-term so these would simply be comfort items.

There's a copy at Big Robot and a 1-year anniversary celebration tomorrow. Might be on sale.

Thanks for passing this on, Dave. I had no idea this movement was afoot. Good!

Does anyone here use Calibre to organize their ebook library? I'm thinking of using the portable version of Calibre to manage my Kindle Touch via my Dropbox account.

The most useful thing about for me is the ability to mass change ebook formats. Makes keeping a library for multiple devices a snap!

That is a wonderful garment. One day I shall have one. A few months ago I was lucky enough to find a wool Boy Scout jac-shirt on clearance at the Boy Scout store for $28. It's not a Filson, but it is well made and much higher quality than most department store goods. I'm now thinking about buying a second one to add a few extra pockets, working epaulets, and maybe a back pouch, sort of a roll-your-own Mackinaw.

Well, it looks like this bag is now discontinued and going for over $100 on eBay. Thanks for both great reviews. Now I'm going to try and find one somewhere.

Anyone have any torrent invites they're willing to throw my way? I only occasionally torrent and Demonoid was the only site I needed for quite a long time. I'm mostly interested in TV, books, and audiobooks but it's good to have all the bases covered.

‎"If you pay $25k (after you add in the interest) for a new car, vs. $15k for a several year old used car, you essentially paid $10k for that 5 year warranty. Unless you actually put $10k worth of repairs into the used car in 5 years, you don't come remotely close to coming out ahead. And you won't realistically put 10k in repairs into any car, not even a several decade old one, in five years. For that much money you could replace the entire engine AND transmission with new ones, and have an essentially mechanically new car."

Agree or disagree?

Completely agree. Never buy a new new car. :) Unless you just have money to burn...

I prefer Android to iOS but my next phone may have to be an iPhone as I'm a serious boardgamer and it seems that while many major boardgames such as Carcassonne, Ticket to Ride, Agricola, etc have iOS versions but no Android versions.

Hmmm...  isn't Chess with Friends available on multiple platforms?  If not, I think Chess Time is available on both iOS and Android.
