iPod Calendar duplicates Google Calendar events when I change them!

I use Google Calendar with the iPod's Calendar app. Whenever I change what calendar an event is found in (from School to Work, for example), it does so successfully on the iPod, but the next time I log in to Google Calendar, that event is in both calendars. How do I keep it from duplicating like this?

Easy Windows directory flattening with minimal tools?

I have a bunch of files, in a nested directory structure. I'd like to collapse the directory structure and move all the files into one folder, preferably sorting them by file extension or name. How do I do this as quickly and easily as possible in WinXP? (Using Cygwin is OK if that's the only way to do it.) [more inside]

Need pointers: Efficient File System Organization

43Filters: I'm looking to re-organize my home directory on my Mac OS X laptop, and I want to do so with a clear organizational structure in mind. The majority of data is work-related, though I have a lot of personal data as well. I need to have a clear distinction between work and personal data, to make backups easier. I tend to create deep hierarchies, and I'd like to simplify where possible. [more inside]

Graphical volume cataloger?

I like what VisualCD does (makes a browseable catalog of a given disk), but it is bonking on files bigger than 2GB. This is a deal breaker for my needs. Anybody know a more robust alternative for Win32, that does the same thing?

Simple to-do software wanted

I'm looking for a very simple to-do list that will sit on my desktop. I've searched Google, but a lot of the results that come up are integrated with calendars and other functions I don't have use for. The ones I did download seem suspicious and attempt to contact their home networks; I don't want anybody spying on me. Does anyone use something like this, where I can simply type a linear list of things I have to get done, and have it floating on my dekstop?
