I love my ical.
It emails my appointments (and phone #s) to my mobile phone---waking me up early in the morning if it has to.
It maintains my .plan file for finger and when I login to a shell.
It maintains a two-week calendar web page for my secretary.
When I used a Palm Pilot, it sync'd with that quite happily.
When I need to do end of year reports, it'll dump out all the text very readily.
But it also keeps birthdays and non-business stuff in a different file, so that I can keep work and "pleasure" separate yet still on the same calendar.
It has a simple file format so that I can still grep if I need to find the name of that guy I spoke with in 1997 around April; begins with a B, has an r in it somewhere too.
It's fairly easy to modify the TCL; just in case.
