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 Results: One Address for Life?

Poll Results: One Address for Life? In TidBITS-549, we gave an overview of the new XNS technology, introduced its governing body XNSORG, and asked whether folks thought XNS would succeed. The poll didn't garner as many respondents as usual - in part because it's difficult to evaluate something to which you've only just been introduced - but 61 percent of the respondents thought XNS would go the distance. Interestingly, TidBITS readers were more cautious than readers of ZDNet's AnchorDesk, 83 percent of whom agreed that the XNS concept was a "natural born killer." We certainly hope so: anything that can deliver even half the benefits of XNS and protect users' online privacy ought to be a good thing. Discussion on TidBITS Talk generally helped clarify some of the aspects of XNS's far-reaching capabilities and possibilities; discussion has since moved over to the XNS Talk list hosted by XNSORG.
