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!

Apple Discloses, Limits .Mac Bandwidth Transfers -- Apple's .Mac service has played it coy for years about how much bandwidth transfer (bytes to and from your Web pages and other parts of your account) are included with your annual $100 fee. I've asked Apple directly about it before and some folks have tested it, and it appears to be... well, it varies based on velocity of downloads, kind of material, etc.

No more. Now the bandwidth limits are officially 3 GB per month with a regular subscription and 9 GB a month if you pay the extra $50 per year for a full 1 GB of online storage. [GF]
