Glass planner app and Google Calendar question...

This is a long shot, but since I learned about the Glass planner app here, I thought maybe someone here can answer a question or two about it. It looks like everything I’ve been wanting in a to-do app, except that I can’t get it to play nice with Google Calendar. This is on an iPhone. [more inside]

The Calendar Application That Doesn't Exist...

I teach adjunct at different colleges. I maintain a calendar for students (and me!) that tracks links to notes and videos and "here's what we did in class" summaries. You can see it here. It's done manually in Google Docs and I move the months to the bottom when the month ends. [more inside]

Sick of missing appointments due to quite Android Calendar

I missed an appointment today as I didn't hear any of the FIVE alarms I had set in my phone, despite it being on the desk right beside me at the time. It seems Android's version of Google' Calendar's reminder sound is a meek little beep. My version is a klaxon. Is there a way to fix this? [more inside]

Print out a special Outlook calendar

I have one calendar, in Outlook. I'd like to view and be able to print a calendar that ONLY lists certain types of appointments: ones that occur on weekends, and ones where I am out of the office (whether I'm out of office on weekends or not). As a bonus, I'd like to have the option to view this special calendar in Outlook, but I'd settle for being able to print it. Basically, I want to view my calendar WITHOUT my Monday to Friday work meetings on it. Is this possible?

Movie calendars from Ogden Theater in Denver in the 80s.

These were printed schedules, I think four color, listing the monthly movie schedule for the Ogden Theater in Denver in the 80s. They were everywhere at the time, and are apparently nowhere now. But there must be some floating around somewhere, scanned or no, and I need them. It's, um, an emergency. Yeah, emergency! [more inside]

Who can see the notes an attendee adds to a Microsoft Outlook meeting?

Someone else organizes a meeting in Microsoft Outlook and invites me. I accept the invitation. If I then put some notes in the big description/details area of that Outlook meeting, are those private to me, or can all the attendees see this? I am having a hard time figuring out how to Google this.

Toolchain for a newsletter

My workplace has a TV with upcoming events on it. The events are from a variety of sources. This is done super-manually right now. My boss wants that information available as a hard-copy newsletter now, with the events of the next week on it. And maybe other outputs like digital newsletter, or to social media accounts or via sms etc. This seems to me an ideal situation to have the info pulled into one source and then pushed out to many.

Vintage Calendars From Doctor's Office

When I was a very young kid in the 60's, doctors' offices often had these detailed calendars with tiny elves or hobbity kind of creatures hanging on the wall. I think they were issued by a drug company, but my Google skills are failing to find them. Anyone remember these and can you supply a link to examples? Cheers.

How can I recover my bitcoins that I forgot all about?

A little over X years ago, I traded for about $1500 worth of bitcoin off mt. gox (I'm PRETTY sure about that). I then set an alarm to go off in 7 days so that I could check on it to see if I'm making money or not. Shortly after, I received horrible news over the phone, and I had to leave the country for 9 months. A little while ago, an alarm on my calendar went off. I had set the alarm for X years and 7 days instead of just 7 days. It doesn't make sense, but it explains how I never remembered this. I have no idea where I put anything!? [more inside]

Your favorite NYC art blogs and calendars?

Dearest New Yorkers, Having just showed up in Brooklyn little more than a week ago (via SF), I've been wonderfully overwhelmed. The one thing I'm missing is a good list of the best places to help distill (or not distill) the innumerable art events and openings popping off both nearby and in Manhattan. Any advices and favorite digital spots are hugely appreciated. I've got a few things I'm looking at but the more, the better. Bonus points for physical publications! <3 Matthew

A paper planner for the natural world

I am looking for a paper daily or weekly planner that includes information about natural phenomena - astronomical events, solstices, animal migrations, moon phase, average time of sun/moon rise and set, traditional activities associated with the seasons, etc. I live in DC, so something semi-regionally specific would be ideal, but I realize that's unlikely.

Where can I create a custom planner / calendar that's POD?

I had the idea that I'd like to create a custom calendar, titled "The Queer Agenda," with holidays and events of note relating to queer history. I would like to do so in a Print on Demand shop where people who like the concept can buy it in variations of school planner and wall calendar. Zazzle and Cafe Press will let me choose pictures and title text, but not day-to-day text, and they also only do wall calendars. This will not work. Many companies like Modern Postcard, Vistaprint, and Snapfish will let me customize days, but they do not offer print on demand designer storefronts. Any recommendations for services that might work better or ideas for how to proceed?

Six Week Ahead Online Calendar

Am looking for a free six-week-ahead online calendar. I currently use Backpackit calendar but the company stopped supporting it a few years ago plus it costs me $12/month. When I open Backpackit the calendar default view is the next six weeks. I find this incredibly useful. I have not yet found another online calendar that shows anything other than one month at a time.

Mac to-do app in Calendar form

I cannot seem to find a good app that will let me: 1) have recurring tasks 2) allow me to check them off as done (like disappear or strike or some other indicator) 3) presented in calendar form (not a "reminders" list). I don't ask for much. I have checked out many many free apps, none of which accomplish what I want. I'm sure this gem is a paid app and I will gladly fork over based on a suggestion, knowing my criteria. I have yet to find one that has all three of these requirements spelled out. Thanks!

Free calendaring software for the office

Our office has outgrown our ad-hoc personal calendars and we are looking for a calendar tool. The biggest need for us is to see when others are available for meetings and make meeting requests. We're not an Exchange shop, so Outlook/Exchange compatibility is not important. Most of us are accessing our email over POP3 in our favorite client, so something that can send/confirm meeting requests via email without preference for a specific client is helpful.

Stop reminding me!

My Google Calendar somehow defaulted to 'add reminder 10 minutes before' for entering events at some point a while ago that I did not notice. Lately, ALL THE EVENTS have been popping up reminders, and exploding my phone (and desktop). Is there a way to globally remove all the reminders everywhere on my calendar?
