Just as I promised, this is the blog about my desktop calendar for windows. If you don't already have a calender such as one that you use with Outlook, this is a great resource for you. It's a free download from CNET. It allows you to manage your events and to do list right from your desktop. It allows you to subscribe to Google's public Calender such as holidays, the Olympic events calendar and professional ball schedules. It has a built in skin editor which lets you personalize your to your own taste.
I personally use the iCalendar Lite. There is also a standard available. Here is the link to a very reputable, virus free website that is very safe to use.
