Ever forget Valentines Day, birthdays...forget to pay that monthly bill?
 
I have been using Sunbird with widows for a long time. I just didn't care for KDE's default calendar. Besides I would have to manually retype every event. (there maybe a way but I couldn't find it)

Don't be caught red face and empty handed again gentlemen (men are the most guilty)
Help is available with Iceowl. I was able to export my windows Sunbird settings as a csv and or a ics file which then can be imported into iceowl. The nice thing about iceowl it also integrates well with Thunderbird.

Cheers

Interesting insight into your personal life there ;)

Ok I'm a slob
Well I can honestly say I am not alone in this camp. I pretty much believe its a guy thing. I have 3 sisters that always remember birthdays and me and my brother are lousy at it.

AND you never ever ever want to forget your anniversary:o It alerts me of that date two weeks in advance

Sunbird has kept my bacon out of the fire a few times. Iceowl keeps me on track when using linux

I was actually wondering about the "widows" you mentioned in your first post
- sorry, just my silly sense of humor :D

LOL
Ok I'm a slob that can't spell. Missed that one :D

Sometimes my brain works faster than my eyes.

Even after I read two posts by Sope highlighting the word widows in bold, I still read it as windows... until wdhpr says he can't spell. Oops now I notice it. :D

Actually there's a test article where in all characters are jumbled up except the first and last characters of the words. I still can read that article without any issue. Doesn't the brain work better than eyes. :confused:

I think the human brain is often more than happy to make assumptions rather than waste time analysing the facts :rolleyes: No wonder we get into so much trouble. That, and forgetting important anniversaries!

You are not alone... I sometimes think that I read too fast for my own good. :D

I find it easier to use a wall calender, writing with a pencil is so much better, plus I can draw too! Also, it's much more convenient for me.

Actually I use both.
Tried to fix the misspell, but was too late.
Oh well more fodder for the forum hawks

Likewise, I can't give up scribbling notes and reminders randomly on a piece of paper right next to my PC, even with all the sticky-note and reminder freeware that's available!

Aw, now that would have spoiled my lame joke!
