I really, really, really, really, absolutely hate and detest iCal. It's garbage as far as I am concerned. Here's what I need: a calendar where I can set events for specific days and times that - at a designated day and time - will pop up a flashing message with sound. I cannot accomplish this in the POS iCal, and I find iCal an extremely inflexible and utterly unintuitive nightmare (by far the worst Apple app IMHO). Seemingly a simple request. Is there such a thing in the big wide world of mac apps? TIA!
