A question if I may; I apologise for asking here but I know this is widely read and somebody may know the answer, and given the poor responses I've had in the past, I'll bet others are in the same boat.

I'm absolutely _sick_ of keeping "todo" notes in a plethora of disorganised text files. I'd love an simple, logical application where I can have categories and subcategories, and to be able to sync this between computers; mainly my desktop (Windows/Linux), my laptop (OS X), and most importantly, my PDA (Zaurus, running a modified Sharp ROM - Cacko). The one-tiered "todo" applications in standard PDA's are _too_ simple, and with the dozens of things I have on the go at a one time, they become incredibly inefficient.

I once posted a detailed request in a forum at http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=7786&hl= but none of the applications suggested really did it for me. Simplicity and syncing-between-machines is the key, here; I want to easily be able to note down stuff, and have it laid out in such a way that it's actually efficient on later referencing and not a complete mess.

Surely there's something decent out there? All the solutions I find are all bulky and horrible to use, and I keep going back to the trusty-but-bloody-disorganised mess that text files are.

Shoot me an email at ryan [at] catstick.com, if you have any suggestions, please! If no such application exists, I'll start hacking on one myself, but I'm convinced there has to be many applications out there specifically targeted for this. Beats me why I can't find any...
