iCal Alerts You Can't Miss

Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.

First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.

Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.

Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

Internet Explorer 2.0b3

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer 2.0b3 -- Microsoft released beta 3 of Internet Explorer last week. The release includes support for Netscape plug-ins, Internet Config, and GIF animations, as well as an enhanced History feature and support for inline QuickTime movies without a plug-in. If you have a Power Mac and QuickDraw 3D, Internet Explorer also includes preliminary support for VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language); ironically, Internet Explorer now directly supports more Mac-specific technologies than Netscape Navigator. The beta can be downloaded from Microsoft's Web site, and is a little over 1 MB in size. [GD]
