  1. iCalendar Plugin for Outlook?

    Does anyone know of an iCalendar plugin for Outlook? My searches haven’t turned up anything. UPDATE: ‘Subscribing to an iCalendar’ means: you enter the URL of the iCalendar into your calendaring software and specify a refresh schedule. Then your calendaring software goes and looks for new data to update the iCalendar on that schedule. It’s…

  2. Around the web

    The M’s stathead is Olkin College of Software Development ESPN.com – MLB – Experts siding with Red Sox in Series ball fight Needful Things Freeware – cool stuff indeed!

  3. Clock Followup

    While at Lowes, I happened across this clock – close enough. 🙂 It seems to work well so far. Maybe not as nice looking as this one, but it works. I picked up one of these too on a whim. I was pleased to find that it can share the same outside sensor.

  4. Bloglines Meme

    My first participation in a meme , blame Scott. Go to bloglines (don’t think you need to have an account). Find your own blog on bloglines (if it’s not there you can sign up and add it I guess, if you don’t have a blog this one’s not for you). Click related feeds (each time…

  5. iPod Dilemma

    I’ve got a 2G 20GB iPod and the battery isn’t holding a charge very well anymore. I’d love to buy a new iPod, but I don’t see a really compelling reason to upgrade. I still have plenty of room and I don’t particularly need the ability to create a playlist on the iPod. Perhaps replacing…

  6. Adam Redesigns

    Adam has redesigned his site and is now running on WordPress. I plan to do the same for alexking.org once I get all the kinks out on my new kingdesign.net site. Great job Adam, hope you find a way to script the conversion of those old entries. 🙂

  7. Windows Explorer Replacement?

    UPDATE 2006-12-18 – UltraExplorer has been officially released. Go check it out, finally a Windows Explorer replacement worth using. I’ve been looking for a decent Windows Explorer replacement and so far have been sorely disappointed. All I want is a quick-access favorites panel (not in a menu) and a drop stack – and something that…

  8. IE JavaScript Help?

    I’ve got some JavaScript that works great in Gecko browsers and Firefox, but doesn’t work completely in IE. It is supposed to create a new field, then set focus to the field. In IE, it doesn’t set focus to the field. Example Code Anyone know of a fix or a work-around?

  9. Lunch

    I had a chance to buy lunch today for a fellow who has been beta testing the pre-releases of Tasks (and sending in some great bug reports). It’s always nice to be able to say “thank you”. I stopped at Starbucks after to try the Chantico. The Bluetooth modem/Dell 700m combo is very nice for…

  10. A Real Weekend (Almost)

    This past weekend I only did about 4-6 hours of work – I can’t remember the last time I took that much time off. On Saturday (after working a few hours in the morning) I went golfing then out to dinner with friends. On Sunday (again after working a few hours in the morning) I…

  11. Around the web

    Daring Fireball: Small, Cheap, and Without a Display The Mini ships with only 256 MB of RAM by default – which everyone knows simply isn’t enough RAM to run Mac OS X comfortably. Hear, hear. Improved Thunderbird OPML – a great explanation of RSS, Atom and feeds in general. MacCentral: The Mac mini: Comparing Apples…

  12. Belkin Bluetooth Adapter

    Eric was kind enough to send me a Belkin Bluetooth adapter (first one, w/ flag antenna) that he was no longer using, and I managed to get it working with the Dell 700m. While installing the drivers, I had to click ‘Continue Installation’ 20 times against the advice of the Windows prompts that kept warning…

  13. Tasks Pro™ 1.5rc4 and Tasks 2.5rc4

    Release candidate 4 of Tasks Pro™ 1.5 and Tasks 2.5 are now available. These releases contain a larger change than I generally like to make this late in the game, but it seemed like it was important change to make. Also of note, this release is available as a .zip archive as well as a…
