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.

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!
