Restore a missing iCal animated alarm clock Apps
Apple did some bad communicating when introducing the latest Quicktime 7.1.3. One result is what would seem to be a bug with iCal -- the vibrating alarm clock is missing from iCal's alerts, as seen on the linked page.

You need to enable Flash support in the QuickTime System Preferences panel (on the Advanced Tab) in order to get the animated alarm clock back in the iCal Alarm window. You have to re-login for the change to take effect, as the iCalAlarmScheduler process must be restarted.

[robg adds: This is closely related to this hint, which spoke of enabling the feature in general. However, in case people are searching for iCal alarm info, I wanted to make sure it was easy to find.]

You can also restart this process without logging out.
  1. Open ActivityMonitor and find the iCalAlarmScheduler process (you may have to the selection criteria from "My Processes" to "All Processes" in order to see it).
  2. Click the Quit button in the toolbar.
  3. Open the terminal and type
    open /Applications/iCal.app/Contents/Resources/
  4. Find iCalAlarmScheduler.app and open it.
Now you have the vibrating alarm without restarting or doing the login/logout cycle.
