I’m a 39 year old autodidact, and very proud to be. I'm looking for work right now, but that's normal given my proclivity for accepting contracts. I write, I eat, and I enjoy life with all of the gusto I can. I love language and languages. I occasionally slip and use serial commas, and when I do I often leave them as a flag flying in the face of my enemy, Language Prescriptivism. I’m a native English speaker and I’ve studied both Latin and several Romance Languages that are derived from it. I’ve studied law, language, history, sociology, logic, debate, math and various sciences, because those subjects all fascinate me to no end.

@warl0ck TM is a joke, it's meant to imply that there is one best way to do something.

comment Which application to use for a calendar?
I appreciate the many options, but for me personally Thunderbird is the only real choice as I don't use KDE or Gnome. @tim gave that answer first so he gets the check, but I upvoted you as you provided a great deal of info. Thanks!

comment Which application to use for a calendar?
Yeah I tried this after following the link that @vicabreu gave us. I don't use kde or gnome, so this is the best choice.

That isn't being maintained after the last release, so I'm going to use what's intended to replace it. Thanks!
