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!

PowerCity Notes

Send Article to a Friend

PowerCity Notes -- PowerCity, which started sponsoring TidBITS last week, was briefly overwhelmed by the unexpectedly enthusiastic response. Unfortunately, their response time increased significantly during the peak load times. The PowerCity folks are working to improve their response times, and ask that if you merely want more information about PowerCity that you put the words "Ordering Information" in the subject of your message. You should definitely read this information before making a quote request so you know what to expect. Also, when making a quote request, put "Price Quote" in the subject of your message, or, although it shouldn't normally be necessary for a fast response, put "Price Quote - URGENT" in the subject line if you need the response as fast as possible. Finally, please send requests for ordering information separately from quote requests. [ACE]
