What is the best calendar?

Hi folks

Id like a calendar where I could enter reminders and they would pop up and remind me about a week or whatever, before the event. Also one that would do so without me having to open it, or perhaps that sits on the desktop always running.

Im sure I read somewhere a description of one like that, and also it was free, I think!

thanks

I use Thundrbird/Lightning and synchronise/share using Google Calendars.
For Reminders/To Dos I have Reminder-Fox add-on in Thunderbird and Firefox (Lightning inbuilt reminders has (or had - havent looked for a bit) issues with repeating items )
I have never been 100% successful sharing the same file - but I am happy maintaining two sets of lists as they tend to be web or calendar/email orientated
The Moz application has to be running for things to pop-up so doesnt address your "perhaps that sits on the desktop always running" requirement but as I usually have at least one if not both running if the PC is on that isnt a problem for me.
If there was something that I needed to know about even if the TB/FF arent running I would use the scheduler

and find it great! I use the free version, but there is a paid for version with slightly more features.

If you have MS Office, use Outlook

After I emailed my query last night I thought, well maybe I should have searched first.... so I did and found Desktop Calendar. Yes its simple and does almost everything. 2 things i miss are being able to warn you of an event say, a few days beforehand.

And the other thing I find is if I have more than one entry there is only enough space on the display for the first one to show. Any solutions to these? Other than that its great.

"Any solutions to these?"

As I've already suggested - Outlook.

But, unfortunately, you haven't bothered to comment upon my suggestion and its suitability for your needs.

Rather boringly I still use my trusty (and bruised) Filofax.

Together with PostIt Notes I can even recall my wifes birthday before the event!

If you have Vista, doesn't the built in "Windows Calendar" do the job?
