In response to my previous post about Firefox, TC Krantz suggests Mozilla's Thunderbird as an e-mail/RSS reader/calendar client.
As someone who misses Entourage dearly, but can't stand the crashing problems I had with it, I'm going to check out Thunderbird. I'm still not happy that Apple Mail and Calendar can't do everything that Entourage did.

Yeah, I also find Apple’s iCal to be a rather lightweight application. I recently tried out Google Calendar, and have since switched over to it. Good features, excellent interface, and nice connectivity with Gmail. I love being able to access my calendar from anywhere, and share my work calendar with my wife so we can keep in sync — a feature that Apple charges $99 a year for. And the most pleasant surprise is how this web-based app feels more robust and responsive that a desktop app.
Although I have never tried a local calendar app, I recommend Yahoo calendar (probably similar to Google). I have been using it for several months and the email reminders have been a life saver! It has all kinds of options for repeating events, mobile reminders, online views, etc. oh, and as with google its free and can be accessed anywhere!
I’M DOING MY HOMEWORK. I just took Alyson’s workshop in Jackson Mi. I want to improve my art bussiness,(http://www.ricksironart.com/) and use a blog to make my artist statement better. My 10 sec. intro was fun to do at the workshop.But the statment really takes some thought. So here goes… Haveing always been intrigued with making things. A love to see a thought in my mind and try to shape it into reality. My hands seem to know what to do when I cut, hammer and weld metal. Learning to let my heart over rule my conscience. Seeing resources being wasted. Details not recognized by people. Calling attention to you to look at my experiences. I hope they convey a new light in your eyes. I’ve always been into recycling and my art shows strong use of found objects. My way of helping reduce global warming and returning beauty.
