    I've just switched to OSX from Windows. I'm currently caught on one thing: if I'm not at my computer for an alert, or if the alert happens while the computer is off, I never see it. I'm used to the MS Office behavior of having an alert (a "reminder" in MS parlance) hang around until I explicitly dismiss it. Is there a way I can get the OSX calendar application to behave this way?

    Many (but not all) of these alerts are more day-specific than time-specific ("start doing your taxes"), and many of them are recurring: every week, every year, etc.

    I know I can just buy office for my Mac but that 1) costs money and 2) presumably won't integrate as well with the rest of the system and my iPhone.

    I'm going to give BusyCal a try. It's billed as more feature-rich than OSX's built-in calendar and reminder apps, but appears to be more tightly integrated with OSX and iCloud than does MS Outlook.

    BusyCal is a great app. I use it all the time.
