I couldn't resist, sorry...


In 5.5, the statistics screen now includes calendar events in the thought count. I'm not sure if this is intended as Calendar events are now thoughts, but I thought I'd point it out.

I would rather that they aren't included in the thought count, but that's just me.

The other thing is, that instead of saying Brain GUID, it says null.

Finally, I only have 18 thought types, not 197.

@ zenrain.

According to Harlan the calendar entries are included as thought. Why I don't know. I also had a strange type count but wasn't answered on that. See: http://thebrain.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=3605220

They are counted as thoughts because they are stored as thoughts in the database. I'd expect their "type" will be set to calendar.

From what I remember of what Harlan posted about this, it made it sound like calendar events are actually being counted as "types" as well, so if you had 100 calendar events, and 20 "real" thought types, you'd display 120 types, but I could have misunderstood.

Hmmm, I knew they were being considered as thoughts, but I didn't know they were being counted as types as well.

I'd like to suggest splitting the calendar thoughts out from the regular thought count and let them have their own count. I don't think it's a major inconvenience (you can still run a report on all thoughts to get a count), but it will raise questions on discrepencies between this and the reports result (although there is already one as thought types are in the count also).

This is especially true for people who create a lot of calendar events. I would think with enough events it will affect the links per thought ratio as well. Again, not a huge deal, but it's still nice to have an accurate representation for how your brain is developing.

This is a new feature of PersonalBrain. It scans your calendar items and turns them into thoughts to remind you of all the things you have to do but are still floating around in your brain. GTD or anti-GTD? I can't tell.
