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!

Adam Engst Speaking at MUG ONE on 04-Oct-05 -- For folks in upstate New York, I'll be speaking at the MUG ONE Macintosh user group meeting in Oneonta, NY on Tuesday, 04-Oct-05 at 7:30 PM at SUNY Oneonta. Initially, I thought the MUG ONE folks would be bored with learning more about iPhoto, given that I've talked to them about iPhoto several times in the past few years, so my main presentation will be about PDF. Whether you're just annoyed at PDF reading tools or perplexed at how to make a decent PDF for distribution to others, I'll be distilling our experience with the PDF-based Take Control ebooks into this session. But, since it turns out that MUG ONE can't get enough of iPhoto, I'll also be sharing some of my favorite iPhoto 5 tips and tricks, and answering questions about this latest version of iPhoto.
