Submission + - Ask Slashdot. Organise my work load 2 2

BigZee writes: For many years, I've used a page-a-day diary as both a planner and a method for taking notes. Whilst not perfect, it's proven to be an approach that's worked fairly well for me. Conscious of the limitations, I want this to become more electronic. In principle, I want to be able to use by Nexus 7 for this function. There are some limitations. My workplace uses MS Outlook. However, I am not able to use Evernote (or similar) on my workplace machine. This limits possible integration along the lines proposed with GTD.
What I want is to be able to take notes that are organised by date as well as being integrated to a calendar (preferably Google). Additionally, I want to be able to prioritise my work along similar lines to GTD. I'm not averse to spending money for the right s/w but prefer to use free s/w where possible. Can anyone suggest what could be used?

Submission + - The Ponds to leave Doctor Who->

BigZee writes: Terrible news for Doctor Who fans everywhere, the Ponds (Amy and Rory) are to be written out of the series during the 2012 season. Although Steven Moffat has commented that change is an important part of the series, it's still going to be sad to see a character such as Amy being written out, particularly as her character has added a great deal to recent Doctor Who lore. Details are yet to be revealed but the end is said to be 'heartbreaking'. Could this be yet another unfortunate ending for an assistants time with the Doctor?
