a while back I found a little AppleScript for OmniFocus users. The author is Shawn Blanc.
It is used to have access to the Quick-Entry Pane, even if OmniFocus isn't running at the moment.
Set-up: the workflow should be triggered with the same keyboard shortcut you use to activate the OmniFocus Quick-Entry Pane.
This way you won't have to worry about starting OmniFocus to use your Quick-Entry Pane, it's always ready!
I just put the script into a workflow and added a trigger. The only thing you have to do is choose the shortcut and you're done.

Hope you enjoy this, (it's pretty useful if you happen to use the Quick-Entry Pane as often as I do)
