Making a weekend smart list (including giant search expression ;-)

raymond.bergmark ProPower Poster says:

A few month ago a poster (www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/help/4331/) tried to make a weekend smart list, no solution was posted. That topic has closed due to lack of interest, therefore a new thread here.

This method involves a really long search, luckily you only have to add it once (see below). Use this smart list in your weekend smart list, maybe something like:
Weekend: dueBefore:monday AND list:¤W
This will show overdue tasks from previous weekends, but maybe that's OK anyway.

¤W is this smart list (cut and paste):
due:2008-01-05 OR due:2008-01-06 OR due:2008-01-12 OR due:2008-01-13 OR due:2008-01-19 OR due:2008-01-20 OR due:2008-01-26 OR due:2008-01-27 OR due:2008-02-02 OR due:2008-02-03 OR due:2008-02-09 OR

I came upon this thread because I'm looking for a way to search for tasks due on the weekend.

@rajjan, you've done an amazing job at constructing that search expression! However, I feel this should be built into RTM searches automatically. RTM is so smart, and so powerful. Why can it not recognise "weekend" as a searchable expression?

I want to find all tasks due on "a Sat" or "a Sun" not "this Sat" or "this Sun".

@emily, any chance of having this included? Or is there a more simple search that I can apply which is dynamic (doesn't need reprogramming every couple of years)?

It only works on the website and you have to make a bookmarklet (once) but then you have a weekend smart list (without the giant search above).
