Arrh!! For the second time in a week I have doubled booked myself :-(.
I need an alternative calendar system. Currently I use the daily pages in my journal to make a diary note. However this does not seem to be working well anymore. I think a combination of not being able to read my own writing and not copying family appointments into my journal are the main reason.
I have also have access to Google Calendar and a Zimbra Calendar. However they are on servers and I want something I can carry and use off-line. Since my Windows PDA does not sync with my Linux software I feel very stuck.
When I was using MS Outlook then the PDA thing worked very well...
Anyway -- sincere apologies to those who have been inconvenienced by my lack of control and effective tools
