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!

DealBITS Drawing: Bare Bones Software

Send Article to a Friend

There are few classes of software that inspire more loyalty than text editors and email programs, and TidBITS sponsor Bare Bones Software has long provided favorites in both fields. BBEdit 7.1 remains the text editor of choice for programmers and HTML coders everywhere, and Mailsmith 2.0.2 has garnered a vocal following among those email aficionados who want powerful filters and unparalleled text processing power. And TextWrangler 1.5, Bare Bones Software's newest program, has become popular with people for whom BBEdit is either too expensive or too feature-rich.
