    Check this website out. www.icalx.com. They will host your iCal calendars for free. It's a great service. They can do both private and public calendars.

    yep. it's really slow. i feel abandoned as a G3 user... i mean, it's exactly the kind of app which should work properly on an ibook, since it's free and relatively simple. and yet it is crapfully slow.

    however, I'm sticking with it. maybe it will improve?

    I just started using iCal recently and I agree with the slowness sentiments. And this is on a 550MHz G4. Resizing the window happens at about 1 fps. I hope QE accelerates more graphic functions such as this in 10.3.

    Speed aside, iCal is an absolutely brilliant program. In my opinion it's the best iApp. The interface is powerful enough to allow you to do just about everything you need to, yet it's amazingly simple and intuitive to the point where you don't have to read any manuals or tutorials to be able to understand it instantly. It's also gorgeous looking. iCal is Apple software design at its best (from a human interface point of view).

    Features I'd like to see:

    - Ability to stay open in the Dock when its window is closed (to show reminders etc.)
    - Big speed boost
    - Ability to reverse the axes in week view so that days are on the y and times are on the x
    - That's about it.

    (Whoops, sorry to go off topic.)

    I don't know about you guys, but I have had no problems with iCal in regards to speed, performance, and functionality. Of course it used on a Powerbook 867 with 768MB of RAM.

    Sorry but it is known that 550 MHz Powerbook is maybe slowest Powerbooks ever made! 500 MHz one is faster then it! And it has crappy graphics also, something more rageish then radeon. Maybe it even doesn't use QE as some people have reported (but I dont know if its isolated case).
