    Default First time Working with iCal and the Address Book apps

    I never tried iCalc. Can you attach Names/phone numbers from the Address book into iCal - Appt, Tasks... how?

    It automatically did my Birthdays.

    I have never tried that. But I did put all the US Holidays into it. Launch iCal. From the menu at the top choose Calendar > Subscribe and type in:
    ical/US32Holidays.ics
    and then make sure that under Calendars where Home and Work are checked, US Holidays is also checked. k

    When I used Claris Desktop I would just type... "Meet with George" and the option to attach the file that contains addresses/emails/and other stuff about "George ....." was made it easily accessible.

    OK, try it this way. With your web browser go to usholidaycalendar and see what you get with the holiday calendar download.

    BTW, there are many pages of iCal downloads available starting here calendars k

    There are a lot of small applications I NEED to start learning and using. There are so many applications within the operating system, that we can do all kinds of neat stuff but rarely does anybody ever use it fully or use it very much. Most of the time when I do it's when somebody says "Hey Randy can I or How do I..." and I will say let me think about it. Then I later figure it out, look it up and ask you guys. I learn a lot it's good for me and then I pass the information on and help my few Mac friends.

    So I'm just going to force myself to work on some of these little tasks. Especially with iPhoto there's so much I could do there that I haven't even begin to scratch the surface.
