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!

Poll Preview: We Live to Serve -- Despite Apple's lack of interest in recent years, the Mac OS makes a stable, inexpensive, and easy-to-administer Internet server platform for moderate-traffic sites (or personal efforts, as you'll read in Ron Risley's article below). The question for this week, then, is which common Internet services, if any, do you provide for other people from a Macintosh? If you've long been a proponent of Mac OS-based Internet servers, this is your chance to evangelize the approach to users who may not believe the Mac is a viable server platform.
