Talking 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
Wdhpr

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 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

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.

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.

I think the human brain is often more than happy to make assumptions rather than waste time analysing the facts 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.

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.

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!
