that can be utilized whether I'm on my desktop or at my laptop. I know if I spend all the time making outlook work for me, I need to have it on my laptop. I take my laptop with me to school and use it in my study while doing homework.
Anybody have any recommendations on one calendar that can but updated / viewed from multiple locations?

Have you tried Yahoo Calendar?

No, I don't think I'll go with yahoo, no matter if that was the last one on earth. It seems once you get working with one of their products, they change something and all heck breaks loose.
I have an email acct that they cant' seem to fix still; I can send but not receive, and of course people were sending me time sensitive data on that one. Every time I've emailed them, I get a scripted "we'll be right with you" type email.

The other night, I did just look at the google one also, wonder about that one. I realize that they may not have what Outlook does, but it sure would be nice.

Try Google...they now have a calendar, word processing and spreadsheets and e-mail...all free... (all of which you can share with others, if you choose)

But I'm wondering ... she says she wants to check on things from multiple locations, so I presume she has access to the net, but what if you don't?
I think Thunderbird for example is OK, but it (used to? (http://lifehacker.com/software/thunderbird/download-of-the-day--tb-quickmove-extension-thunderbird-197186.php)) lack quite some features compared to Outlook.

You could use a palm pilot or PDA phone

I haven't tried it yet, but Mozilla is developing a cross-platform calendar product called Sunbird. I am a big fan of never having to buy software if there is a reasonably good Open Standards version around. I've looked at the screenshots and it appears very usable. Go to www.mozilla.org.

I plan to write an entry here sometime on free and very good software.
