Any good?

You can download and save.
They seem to be printable only. I need to physically be able to type info next to the date and then save. I need to add band bookings, birthdays, holidays etc next to the allotted date. Like a kind of year planner. I live in fear I will lose my real life diary and shit would really hit the fan.
I just downloaded the template 1 multi coloured and you can open it in Word and add what you like. Am I missing something?

Ratty's post is better Google will suit you.
My Word has ran out, they want money or something.

I will definitely investigate all these options further tomorrow, thanks in the meantime to you and Ratty.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

So this is like a tech support thread? I wish I knew.

But yeah Google apps will work well for you you can use Google docs instead of ms office. LIBRE OFFICE is a nice viable alternative to office on your local machine

Mozilla used to make a nice calendar program probably still do

Never really used it myself other than glimpsing at, Yahoo Mail has a calendar application on their site, too. That may be helpful!

My googly skills have been wholly inept on this, so I'll see if anyone here has any ideas. Yesterday, things went wonky with my iMac. The chief symptom was that Safari kept quitting, so I just restarted the whole machine. This led to two seemingly contradictory results. One was that the amount of free RAM went from around 1–2 GB to around 10 GB. Mysterious, but that should be good. However, things in general slowed down considerably. I know I'm going to have to suck it up eventually and take it down to the Apple Store, but I'm curious whether there are any ideas about the strange paradox of more free memory and decreased performance.

I wish I knew how to help. There is nothing worse than going to the Apple store. OK, maybe the Holocaust, but that's about it.

I've never had a problem at the Apple Store myself. It's when we have to take B's laptop in, and the problem is related to her being justifiably embarrassed by her messy desktop screen. Folders! Put your ten billion documents in folders!

Anyway, I'm thinking my problem is related to Safari in some way. If I can't properly reset it, I'll just switch to a different browser on that machine and see what that does.

I find that many problems can be solved by emptying my trash, as silly as that sounds. Don't get your hopes up, but that stuff will still bog you down even though it's not on your desktop. You might also check out your Activity Monitor to see if there are some wacky programs running in the background that you're not using.

Nope, none of that. I always have the AM running, and nothing goofy there. I also have Little Snitch installed, so I can control any network activity. I'm really baffled why the free memory has grown so much, tho. I have 16GB of RAM and it's gone from 1–2 free to around 10, without any change in what's normally running.

How strange. Please report back from the Apple store, if they're able to provide an answer. I haven't been able to find anything on Google either, so I'm very curious.

I'm resisting taking it in because lugging an iMac is a pain in the ass. Assuming the problem is Safari, I'll probably just switch to Chrome or Firefox. But, yeah, if I'm forced to go in, I'll let you know what they say.

Did Heston ever get boffed?
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Sort of. The cod turned out to be rancid, so he had to microwave the mayo first before mixing it with the baked beans.
