My therapist has suggested I spend time with people -- not online, but In Real Life -- in order to help me me deal with issues I have with avoiding difficult situations and confrontation.
I thought I would make a list of people I want to spend time with and then periodically 'ask them out' just to spend time and chat about things. Perhaps a lunch or something similar. These could be friends, family, business relationships or just people I respect and would like to spend time with.
CONTACTUALLY already does this quite well but is a bit feature-heavy and is geared towards business contacts. I am looking for something a bit more lightweight and geared toward individuals and personal relationships.
I think just the following features ought to do it:
1. List of people and contact info
2. Reminders to meet periodically that could be changed based on the contact.
3. Ideally, something that could be edited either online AND an app so that its synced.
Looking forward to getting your ideas and input.

Every now and then I go through my inbox and clear it out. I create events in Google calendar whenever there is an item I need to address in the future. I've never been 100% happy with this non-system for reasons I can't properly define. Is there some better place to offload everything that integrates with Android and windows/any browser?

I looking for a reliable and free way to schedule facebook updates. I have used laterbro, hootsuite and socialsafe. All have issues. I post about 12-20 times a day and they frequently stop sending the updates at some point. The best solution would be web based. I would also like to find a free web based email scheduler as well.
What have you, hive?

I have, to aid in not permitting myself to stay up too late, set Windows 7's Task Scheduler to automatically hibernate at a certain time in the evening that varies according to weekday. However, if I manually hibernate the system beforehand (i.e.
, go to sleep earlier than the deadline), when I wake it the next morning, it hibernates shortly thereafter. However, importantly, I do not
have the "Run task as soon as a scheduled start is missed" checkbox turned on. I've seen this
, but Richard's suggestion of only letting the task run after a certain idle period – I don't think it'd be suitable as I don't want activity (either mine or the computer's) to be able to push things past the deadline. Any ideas as to what I can do?

What is it like to work as a scheduler for the President of a University? I can not seem to find a job description online and want to know what it entails. Bonus points if you know the general salary as well...

I know there have lots of previous threads regarding time tracking and scheduler apps, but I have a specific need -- we have multiple locations and a huge complex with mobile employees. We need to be able to pull up the web page and see a list of the employees and their status (In/Out/Lunch/Off-Site), and a notes and/or pull-down section that specifies location. [more inside]

I need a good, creative Christmas gift idea for my dad. He's really into travel by air and rail--not the vehicles themselves so much, but their schedules, the logic behind putting a particular model on a particular flight, etc. [more inside]

What do people use to schedule meetings. I'm told it can be done with Outlook, but I hate Outlook. Is there a web site that makes this painless. I'm envisioning a calendar where people can mark the times that they can't attend a meeting so that it's easy to see when the meeting CAN be scheduled. Any help appreciated.

I'm looking for Project Management software for a software development shop. Please, no MS Project - it's just too big to get our hands around. Any reccomendations to help schedule a team of about 5 developers and 2 QA folks? I see lots of people participating in the scheduling (not just one "overseer") so flexibility is a must. We're looking for granularity by feature->components->tasks. We want to do a good job with time estimates and contingencies. Thanks
