not exactly a set-up question but I wonder.
has anyone dealt with Microsoft journal (.jnt) files under linux? I am
essentially looking for a script to convert them to something useful.

using MS journal under windows XP for the conversion is a major pain in
the rear because it does not do batch conversions as far as I can tell.

I googled around and I downloaded various journal clones for linux which
do the job well for annotating stuff but none seem to read in/convert the
..jnt files.
