I wanted to be able to select some text and say "this is something that should go in my PalmOS, or whatever organizer, you know, hey computer, do something useful, be a secretary, figure it out."

So I googled for it.[1]

Here it is: "anagram 2.2.0" is now running in my system tray, and I just selected the block of text someone sent me about a party, pressed the hotkey, and Bob's not your uncle but his party is now an appointment in Outlook which syncs nicely to the PDA! Yow!


[1] Want something to exist? Goggle for it. It will be created. Usually about six months retroactively, unless it's a meme. but I digress.
