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!

Connectix Releases Speed Doubler 8.1 -- Connectix has released Speed Doubler 8.1, an update to the performance-enhancement and utility package that's compatible with Mac OS 8.1. New features include the ability to leave Speed Doubler running (avoiding delays when it copies files or empties the trash) and the Hot Keys automation feature can mount a remote volume and open disks or folders. The update also features improved file copy performance and compatibility with Macintosh Extended Format volumes (see "All About Macintosh Extended Format" in TidBITS-414). Connectix says international versions of Speed Doubler 8.1 will be available soon, depending in part on Apple's release of international versions of Mac OS 8.1. The Speed Doubler 8.1 Updater is a 476K download; a separate updater is available for Speed Doubler 8's version of Speed Copy for network servers. [GD]
