More on Calendars

One online calendar I neglected to check out is Airset. Thanks to a couple of alert readers who emailed me, I tried it out tonight. It's much, much better than the proof-of-conceptware that people are hyperventilating about. In fact, it's the first online calendar I've found that seems like it might work for me.

Why didn't I evaluate it before? Well -- to be honest -- I went to the website, and couldn't find any screenshots or specific technical information, or an easy way to try it without signing up, so I gave up. It didn't help that Walter Mossberg had chosen Trumba over Airset and for some reason I let that influence me into not trying Airset. Dang, that was dumb.

I still have a list of feature requests for the Airset developers, though! If you know someone who works over there let me know.


Have you been wondering about Distributed Version Control? It has been a huge productivity boon for us, so I wrote Hg Init, a Mercurial tutorial—check it out!
