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!

The Macintosh LC 520

Send Article to a Friend

The Macintosh LC 520 is sold in Canada, or so <> writes to tell us. Unlike in the U.S., where Apple currently sells the LC 520 only to the education market, normal people can buy the LC 520 in Canada. The Canadian versions of the LC 520 sport 8 MB of RAM, an 80 MB or 160 MB hard disk, and an internal CD300i. All that, and apparently at a price lower than a comparably equipped LC III.
