The desert grows Hmm, sounds interesting. First of all, I have come across some articles talking about the suicide event but most of them seem more intrigued by the sensationalist event than by the actual “thing as such”. The problem of philosophy is that the paradoxes of nihilism may constitute the most universal condition or “highest principle” that rational thought has “progressed”. If the rational life leads to the nihilistic life, what are the consequences of a living intelligence whose highest organizing “principle” is this hypothetical nothingness? How far I can draw the implications of nihilism to life? My follow up post

when you're dead or incapacitated... This thread caused me to remember that several years ago, I had an icon on my Windows desktop that said "Click here, if I'm dead". It opened up a Word document that pointed to a password protected Word document. The password was not in the original document, but was a "clue" that my husband would be able to figure out. The password protected Word document included info about how to get into my password manager & various other info I thought should be shared if I were dead or in a coma. I pay the bills in the household & keep track of any important documentation for home repairs, big ticket purchases, etc. Oh, and existence/location of safe deposit boxes...

Feature Request - 'Due Date' attribute I see that the "Due Date" field is coming "soon". Which makes me hope that this new date field also can be used as a general way to reflect the date of note content. Including notes with "old" content. I use Evernote primarily as an archive for all my old scanned documents.

And if so, wouldn't it be a good idea to call the new date field "Subject Date" instead of "Due Date"? Just a thought. Sab Norway
