Alarmist is an easy and secure way to make sure that you have reminders for all the things in your calendars. When Alarmist opens it automatically lists all WRITE-enabled calendars in your ical. This is important because you should know that the so-called "birthday calendar" which you can enable in iCal's preferences, is NOT a real calendar at all and will therefore not show up in the list. It is a READ only text listing of birthdays in your address book. That is why you could never edit it or add alarms. But rest assured : Alarmist 1.3 can help here too. It will sync the birthdays from your Address-book to a calendar of your choice (f.i. my_birthdays)and it can automatically add alarms. This new version of Alarmist has a special TAB for that. And from there it's just a couple of clicks to a full sync. To summarize : Do a lot of things that you might be able to do manually quicker and in one go with iCal-Alarmist.
