Hayden Sponsoring -- We'd like to welcome our latest sponsor, Hayden Books, the company that publishes Tonya's and my books, along with many other titles. Ever since Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh took off, Hayden has looked at getting on the Internet in a serious way, but the process was complicated by the fact that Hayden is an imprint of Macmillan Computer Publishing. Thus, the Web site that recently appeared had to take into account not just Hayden, but all of the Macmillan Computer Publishing imprints. The site has large amounts of information about the various titles including tables of contents and sample chapters from many books. You can search for specific books, subscribe to a service that alerts you to new books in certain subject areas, and even download software that's bundled with some of the books. You can buy books online if you wish, and all are discounted 20 percent. And, of course, each of the imprints has its own home page. So if you're a computer book fan, check it out. [ACE]
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!
