FlexCal used to be a great program and very helpful. Before I installed Snow Leopard and enabled all 64-bit functions, it worked flawlessly. Now, FlexCal won't run in the background anymore unless you manually start it up by opening System Preferences, start the FlexCal preference pane twice (twice because it has to be closed and reopened), and then click on start for the magic to begin. With all these steps, it's much simpler of course just to open iCal or switch to a different utility like MenuCalendarClock. Too bad, because while FleCal worked, it was the best. I hope the developer fixes this probelem soon by making it Snow Leopard compatible and 64-bit compliant.
