If you're like me, you use an electronic calendar of some sorts. As well, if you're like me, you hate outlook with a passion. Well, I've found an alternative. It's called Sunbird. It's from mozilla (firefox). And it works really nicely with my other calendar application of choice, Google Calendar. Install Sunbird, then follow these instructions. And you'll see what I mean. -- edit -- As an update to that, there's also lightning, which adds sunbird functionality directly into Thunderbird. That's what I'm talking about!
