Quicksilver keeps amazing me.
I had to mail a document so I wrote that mail and then browsed for the document in order to attach. I forgot where on the file-system that
document actually is since I always open it with Quicksilver. I then thought that I would be real neat if I could find it with Quicksilver and
then drag and drop it in Mail.
That just works ™
Nothing new for the die hards and old old news: drag and drop.
Still I’m surprised it is in there.
I just love Quicksilver. It feels so simple, but has a wealth of features and keeps amazing me in that it always is one step ahead of me….. But that step is not in my face and is there when I realize I need it and are ready for it.

I read in the MacSparky Blog about a nifty Applescript script. It transfers my iGTD stuff to OmniFocus.
It did not transfer everything. It had some issues. However I was able to play a bit with OmniFocus with some real data, which was nice.
Somehow I missed my due dates in the main window. However you can clearly see Merlin Mann’s influence in the un-distract-ifying way of life. It is there, you just have to enable it. If you look at the date in the Action you wonder how to change it. Hovering over it and a small calendar icon appears. Also a project does not seem to have a date. However hovering over it it is there.
But I’m not sure. Un-distract-ifying is all nice and dandy. But do I need it, if I decided to activate my OmniFocus window on my Mac? I already decide to have a look at is. So it may distract me. Actually hiding is more distracting to me. Perhaps I get used to it. For now I’m still leaning towards iGTD.
And OmniFocus needs a QuickSilver plugin. I don’t want another hot key, which does not add anything. I know you can immediately assign a project and context to it, but I don’t want that, since the inbox is fine by me. I can review it later.
