Kai> Yeah, there should be a way to manipulate the items.

I must admit I would rather not, but if it proves to be the shortest,
most direct route to good "todo" management I guess I will do it.  I
will first check out the other options you discuss.

>> Also, what todo list "tools" do you use from emacs?

Kai> I've heard reports from people using outline-mode.  C-k and C-y are

Kai> Then there is records mode.

Kai> Then there is Hyperbole.

That sounds like the "diary" content...

Kai> Then there is planner.el

Kai> Then there is organizer-mode.

Kai> Then there is todoo (note the extra o) which is kind of like a
Kai> cross-breed between outline mode and todo mode.

So many to try...

>> Did Kia create one that worked with Gnus?  (I may have dreamed that...)

Kai> Oops.  Caught me...

Ah Ha! :-)

Kai> It's called gnus-todo or todo-gnus I think.  But it was taken and

Kai> And then there is another alternative called nndiary.

Where can I get nntodo and nndiary?

Kai> Oh, there is also a package which provides an Rmail-like interface to

Kai> There is also GNATS (don't confuse it with GNAT), now called PRMS

Kai> Isn't it fascinating that there is such a large assortment of modes

Wow, there are so many!  (Mark is now assigning self many todos to
check out the many todo programs...  I can't help feeling like I am
somehow trapped in a circular dependency.)  ;-)

Thank you Kai!
