MInd Manager or MindView (2)

MindView looks promising but unfortunately it is useless for my needs: it has only one calendar. Where corporations are compared to pyramids, the individual is a pyramid upside down. Tiny corporations with a sales departmant, finance department, and so on. ( Using that methaphore studying takes place in the R&D department. ) It is however a corporation with one staff member: unless we look at the hours of the week as staff...
I use mind manager to branch out ideas, thoughts, entirely free format. Some branches are mirrored in JVCGannt, MM's project management add-in. In these branches I add concrete tasks to be executed. In the planner they are assigned a resource: work, study or personal. For these resources I have created a calendar. The STUDY calendar has the hours which I have reserved for study as work hours. The hours assigned for work and personal are non-workable hours in that calendar (and so on). With MindView's one calendar limitation I can't use it to setup my plans. Other planning tools are out of the question because they don't have MindMap integration. So I'll stick with Mind Manager for a bit longer. - MindManager does have MS Project integration though. But it is of course completely over the top to maintain, what is in essence a to do list, in MS Project.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
