I've been waiting for many months for the "official" David Allen Notetaker wallet (aka the Getting Things Done Evening Module).  They've been out of stock for many moons, and I just  noticed that David posted a note a few days ago to let people know they are back in stock.

That's old news to me - I got mine a couple of weeks ago.  How'd I do that - an insider tip from David?  No - I'm not that special.  Here's how I did it:

Rather than visiting the page all the time looking for when they restocked, I used a handy (free) service called "Watch That Page."

In this case, I set up a watch for the David Allen Company's product page.  Then, each time the page changes, I get an email showing me the differences on that page.  A couple of weeks ago, I got an email saying the price on the NoteTaker wallet had changed from "Out of stock" to $99.00 and I had placed my order about 10 minutes later.

This is handy to watch just about any publicly accessible page, and it provides a "smart" summary by sending an email showing only the parts of the page that have changed.
