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!

Brief Horn Tooting -- As the year draws to a close, we can't resist passing on a few bits of self-promotion from 1998. Internet Valley just placed TidBITS 29th on a list of the top 100 most influential computer publications, according to the number of external links pointing at that publication. Other awards we've won this year include the MacTimes Mac Merit Badge in May, the Suite101.com Top 5 Best of Web award in June, the ABC's of Parenting 3 Stars rating in September (we're not sure what the connection is), the Mac Hottest 5 award in September, a My Mac "Best Author for a Rainy Evening" Book Bytes award for Adam in October, and an OpenRoad Reviews 5 rating in November (along with a well-researched review of our work). Check our awards page below to see the snazzy little award graphics. [ACE]
