Makes Entourage-to-iCal transfer easier (was iCalAid).

Overview

iCal Helper is an example of a rapidly prototyped tool to fulfill a specific task using AppleScript Studio. The problem is the lack of scripting support in Word + Entourage Special Edition, which make easy transfer of calendar events from Entourage to iCal difficult. Also, the lack of recurring tasks in iCal, forces many tasks in Entourage to be entered as calendar events. iCal provides an easy to manipulate interface to float its window above Entourage 2001 running in Classic and a task and/or calendar list can be read and entered. The resulting information is sent to iCal. Includes source code.

What's new in iCal Helper

Version 1.0 adds the following:
  • New command under file menu will reopen application window if it gets inadvertently closed.
  • Services Menu added which now contains the commands that will obtain information about a Web page or file to be associated with an event or task. Also included under Services are the following commands:
  • Diary Entry - a note taking device which allows one to add entries to iCal calendars which are not necessarily events or tasks. any calendar can be selected.
  • Get iTunes Track Info - Inserts information about the currently playing iTunes track into the event window.
  • Insert Temperature - Inserts the current temperature for a zip code into an event.
  • Insert Stock Quote - Allows the insertion of delayed stock quotes into iCal calendars.
  • A refresh button allows the reloading of editable calendars if one is created or deleted in iCal while iCalAid is running.
  • Start Times and End Times now utilize 24-hour times to allow International usage.

I don't know what iCal Helper is or does or how it got on my computer since I cannot even locate the files, but since updating to Tiger, a Keychain dialogue appears periodically throughout the day asking for access on behalf of "iCal Helper". It is very irritating and I have no idea why keychain access is needed or how to stop the behavior. A few other people have posted similar complaints on Mac related forums.

I agree. I'm having the same issue with iCal Helper. It is constantly asking for the keychain password.
