Last time I tried, the 43folders wiki wasn't letting me create an 
account.  If we really have become unable to update that wiki, perhaps 
we should think about setting up another one (I have some scripts that 
might be of interest to British remind users).

You could this with (g)awk quite easily -- it's what I use to 
manipulate remind.  Just pipe the output through:

#!/usr/bin/gawk -f

	date = strftime("%a %Y-%m-%d", mktime(gensub(/\//, " ", "g", $1) " 00 00 00"))
	time = $6
	tag = ($3 == "*") ? "*" : "[" $3 "]"
	body = substr($0, length($1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $6) + 7)
	printf "%s %-11s %-8s  %s\n", date, time, tag, body

YMMV; you may want to tweak that script as it's just what I hacked up 
and may not be robust enough.
