Friday's Unscientific Poll: Paper planners

I know I'm a slow-moving mammal when it comes to the Internet. I mean hey, I'm still actively using LiveJournal and am suspicious of these new-fangled innovations like Tumblr and Instagram. But it sometimes surprises people to see that I keep a paper diary. I do use an electronic calendar (for work; Microsoft Outlook) but it's not my primary source for my list of daily tasks and meeting reminders. If I don't physically write things down, I don't remember to do them nearly as well as if I've put pen to paper in the process of committing them to memory. So I'm curious if there's anyone else out there who is still stubbornly clinging to their paper calendar or planner, or if I'm finally approaching an age when I can start becoming properly Luddite.
