Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Conflict Catcher 3 Conflict

Conflict Catcher 3 Conflict -- Nathan Ainspan <nda1@cornell.edu> writes:
There is one problem with Conflict Catcher 3 that has been recognized and corrected. People with Open Sesame from Charles River Analytics will find that CC3 will conflict with this application and cause the computer to either hang or crash. When I called Casady and Greene's tech support line, we spent about twenty minutes trying to figure out the problem until the telephone rep heard that I had Open Sesame on my machine. He instantly knew what the problem was - the two applications try to write to or utilize the same bit of the system. A patch is available from Charles River Analytics. [The patch is available in Casady & Greene's online forums on the commercial services, although not their Web page yet. I've uploaded the patch to Macgifts, so it should appear on the Internet in a few days. -Adam]
