Offline Calendar application for Windows that is not Sunbird?

I find myself without the internet far more often than without my computer, so I would prefer keeping something as vital to my peace of mind as my calendar offline. I've experimented with Mozilla Sunbird, but it's got a bunch of little quirks and flaws that bug me, and I'd like to see what else is out there.

I would essentially like to replicate the features of Sunbird, but perhaps in the form of a more smooth and polished interface. If Google Calendar were available as a standalone desktop application (and perhaps it is, and I'm just not aware of it), I'd be all over that. So far, I use Sunbird to list classes, wildly fluctuating meetings, as well as micromanage and plan out my study schedule - it's as much a to-do list as an events calendar.

So is there a Windows calendar application out there that does what iCal does better than Sunbird?

Response by poster: I should probably also specify that I don't use any form of e-mail client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc), so standalone would be key.

Google calendar can be run offline. Go to the Google Calendar page and click "Offline" at the top right.

Response by poster: It's a read-only version that doesn't allow editing, as far as I understand it.

I've found Calgoo, but I'm not sure if it's a standalone calendar with the feature of syncing to GCal etc., or if it just won't run if you don't have a GCal account...

Huh..just tested it. You are absolutely correct. Sorry about that.

Maybe a lot more minimal than what you're looking for, but I'm a big fan of Rainlendar

Have you looked at MonoCalendar. It's pretty much iCal for windows.

I always have internet and use Google Calendar, but I got Active Desktop Calendar for my mom and she's happy with it. (Not sure if it's the exactly what you're looking for and it's $24.90 US.)
