comment How to remember things you don't often use?
exactly - taking notes is essential if you (like most people, I assume) do not have a photographic memory for every detail.

@Celeritas: a topic like "others" or "miscellaneous" is always dangerous as it allows you to put everything in there and create a great mess. On the other hand it's better than nothing and as long as you have full text search and the right search term, you'll find your note anyway, so I'd say don't bother too much about the right topic name and just collect those notes "somewhere". If you then realize, that many of them concern the same topic (e. g. "computer", you can still create a new category later).

@juanpastas: how do you take your notes? On paper or electronically? I find it useful to take them electronically which gives me full text search of the content. (I've always struggled with notes on paper and I'm also forgetting things...)

comment ToDo list application with projects, start and due dates, a priority field and custom filtering for Mac OS X?
I don't have much experience with Linux yet. Did you see the org-mode manual section about installation: orgmode.org/org.html#Installation ? Hope that helps. An older version of org-mode should be bundled with an emacs installation, but I'd recommend getting the current org-mode version with git, copying to a path in your home directory and then loading it in .emacs during startup like described in the above mentioned manual.

comment Tickler system for electronic files - how?
do I understand correctly, that you want to read the same article again after a certain time, or do you collect a large number of articles and want to have a look at the long list and choose some unread ones to read next?

comment When the Todo-list/planning becomes an overwhelming task in itself
org-mode is just awesome! :-) I learned to use Emacs only to work with org-mode and it was absolutely worth it, however it took quite some time to get familiar with it (Emacs in general)

comment A software/application to Organize my random sets of data/content/texts/info
it took me quite a long time to get used to it, but it is very powerful and I use it in parallel with Freeplane - Freeplane more for brainstorming, detailed notes in long meetings) and Emacs org-mode for task management and for storing shorter notes from phone calls etc. Ideally both application should work closer together (import/export the data vice versa).
