Google Calendar

I haven't talked about good software in a while, so let me introduce you to Google Calendar.

When you first look at your calendar, you see nothing but... well... a calendar. I never was big on using a calendar before, and I really had nothing to put in there. So I started by creating a schedule for the Houston Aeros 2005-2006 season. It actually went fairly well, I could put in the name of the arena they were playing in along with the city and state (or providence, they played a few games in Canada), and it would come up in Google maps. Neat!

Next, I put in my vacation, flights included. It's a bit lacking in time-zone specific information, but I was willing to overlook that for getting 3 hours advance notice of a flight.

Finally, I started throwing my blocks for working on projects in there, and that has really gotten me fully into using Google Calendar. I'm fairly amazed at how simple the interface is to use, yet has many features that make using it worth it. Check it out, even if you don't use calendars much. You may be surprised at what it has to offer.
