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!

Free Surfing for Ricochet Subscribers

Send Article to a Friend

Owners of Metricom's Ricochet wireless modems can get a free Web browsing boost thanks to a recent deal with Connectix Corporation. (See Jeff Carlson's "Tied Down No More: The Ricochet Wireless Modem" in TidBITS 366 for more information.) Metricom is offering a free downloadable copy of Connectix's Surf Express, software that caches Web pages more efficiently than current Web browsers. According to figures taken from an evaluation study by UTSI International Corporation commissioned by Metricom, Surf Express provided the best smart-caching solution. The deal is being offered to current and future Ricochet subscribers; you must provide your modem's serial number and your billing zip code for validation before downloading the 1.8 MB file.
