Making a better iCal

A few days ago, Merlin Mann mentioned on his 43 Folders site that he’d be interested in a small enhancement for iCal. Out of the box, iCal only adds an alarm to events if you manually add it – strange behavior, considering a calendar is the tool to alert us to upcoming events. He asked for automatic creation of those alarms.

At the same time, I was looking to delve a bit deeper into OSX programming. And it was also sufficiently small that I could turn it into an experiment on productivity.

  1. Hi Ben!

    Glad to hear you liked the plug-in. There’ll be a monthly feature release, so if there’s anything you’d like to see, I’d love to hear it.

    Oh – a quick note about your blog: You seem to be getting a SQL error somewhere. On your home page, at the top of each article, there’s the message

    WordPress database error: [Unknown column ‘user_level’ in ‘where clause’]
    SELECT COUNT(*) FROM wp_users WHERE user_level > 2

    Anyways, happy new year, and thanks for mentioning my little plugin!
