    Is there a way (free?) to put my calendar I keep in MS Outlook 2003 on my desktop? Maybe it could be an active desktop item? Have any of you done this? Thanks

    I currently have it, but find it difficult to keep track of events in.

    I think there might be.Try The Tweaking Experience, I was able to put a shortcut direct to the sticky notes in Outlook on my desktop by using this tweaking program.

    I'd still look into Rainlendar - maybe a way to link it up to outlook and get the same effect (ask the guy who developed, he'll know) - see here

    I found this program: http://www.xemico.com/desklook/ it looks like something I want, but the problem is: it isn't free. But it is what I am looking for.

    2nd that opinion - but the big €£$ ? is will they pay the (IMHO inflated) price for it?

    I tried out Rainlender, it works fine and intigrates with my Outlook Callender seemlessly, the only thing is I cant figure out how to get it to run on Windows startup

    1) there is an option for for rainlender to start on startup, right click rainlender>config...

    2) You could also put a shortcut to rainlender.exe in your startup folder.
