Automatically add an alarm to an iCal event
icalBy default iCal requires you to add an alarm manually to any event you create. That takes precious time. It’s tedious. And sometimes you forget to do it at all. All in all, that’s not a win for productivity.
Robert Blum has created a plug-in for iCal that adds an alarm automatically, set to remind you 24 hours before the event.
It requires SIMBL, (Smart InputManager Bundle Loader), the same Cocoa application hack that powers the Safari plug-in PithHelmet and iAlert, a Mail.app (and more) notification system.
Robert seems to plan more features in the future, but you can get the current version from his blog.
UPDATE: Newer version (0.2) released 17 January 2006.
UPDATE: Newer version (0.3.1) released in March 2006.
