You might already know that I have a lot of lists on my computer. I may have mentioned once or twice that I have such lists. These lists are connected to a certain popular productivity system which isn’t really about productivity and is a little bit like a cult.

I might have also mentioned that I’ve been longing for a “smart” phone, partly so I can have these lists with me at all times, to clutch at reflexively like some Popish talisman.

Now that I have a Palm Prē I have lists and a smart phone, and yet one does not know the other. I am at a loss as to how to get my lists — line-separated text files on my laptop — onto the Tasks application on the Palm. Even then, once they are on the Palm, I have no idea as to how to get them synchronized with something I can edit from my laptop.

Any ideas?
