Rainlendar: Desktop Calendar
Nifty little desktop calendar for the Windows desktop, with a negligible memory footprint.
A calendar on the desktop is a handy feature. My option to date has been to settle for Webshots, which is a nifty screensaver rotator utility and all that, but a bit bulky. Even when I turned off its screensaver functionality, its startup utility took up more time than I'm comfortable with.
Enter Rainlendar, the cute windows desktop calendar! Tricky names aside, this is simply a fabulous find. It's small, cute, has a negligible memory footprint, and looks great with its avant garde font.
It's a breeze to configure. You can place it anywhere on the desktop screen by simply dragging it and it latches into place. Best of all, you can have your To-Do lists and Events show up on the desktop as well. In a cool, semi-transparent manner (and the colors readjust automatically to make sure the text is visible.)
Best feature: It integrates right into my Microsoft Outlook through a MAPI interface — Calendars & Tasks. It even recognized my Archive.pst and pulled the calendar entries from there! No need to have a separate to-do list.
