    Looking for: good calendar (not iCal)
    Hey guys (girls),

    I am on the look for a good calendar. I keep forgetting to open my iCal to look at my tasks. I even forget to put up a reminder for important dates so iCal is basically useless for me.

    So I am looking for a calendar that automatically reminds you off important tasks and/or that blends in with my background so its always open and I can always look at it.

    Hopefully someone can help me out!

    Google calender works well, but, no offense, if you cant remember to set the reminders when you enter the data, every calendar out there is useless to you. You could set up ical to open when you turn on the Mac

    I agree with what has been said ... the problem is you, and the solution is you as well.

    Until you learn to set reminders, no calendar program will work for you. iCal works GREAT for this. I use a program called MenuCalendarClock iCal to put an iCal icon in my menubar that I can look at anytime. But again, without setting the reminders in the first place, nothing will work for you.
