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!

Responses to email might be slow for the next week or so. Geoff is taking some well-deserved time off, Tonya's battling article deadlines and a sore neck, and we have family coming to visit. In other words, real life once again intrudes on our little make-believe computer world, and it's good to come up for air and work on keeping things in perspective. [ACE]
