Thanks for all the suggestions, folks.

I tried installing Osmo, but had dependency problems... I'll update my distro within 2 months (to the new Debian-based CrunchBang) so I'll give them all a go then.

Thanks again!
Chris

LXDE doesn't provide the tools you are looking for, but there are a some
apps that are lightweight and use GTK, so they fit into the LXDE desktop
quite nicely.

     * Notecase: http://notecase.sourceforge.net/ (*not* Notecase Pro)
       It's discontinued too, but still works fine.
     * CherryTree: http://open.vitaminap.it/en/cherrytree.htm
       Lots of features, but stupid installer scripts
     * Gjots2: http://bhepple.freeshell.org/gjots/screenshots.html

     * Alarm Clock: https://launchpad.net/alarmclock
       Has some GNOME deps (GConf). It used to be a GNOME panel applet,
       was converted into a standalone tray icon on 0.3.0.
     * Alarm clock: http://alarm-clock.pl/
       Tray icon, no GNOME deps.

Some more suggestions:
     * Xpad: http://mterry.name/xpad/
       Sticky notes in GTK, requires a patch [1]  to work with GTK >
       2.18.
     * Dayplanner: http://www.day-planner.org/
       Nice Organizer with reminder and sync functionality, written in
       Perl
     * Osmo: http://clayo.org/osmo/
       Small but complete PIM suite

Regards,
Christoph
