Create Growl notifications from iCal events
Authored by: aarow75 on Aug 03, '06 08:25:01AM
This tip works great, however the same thing can probably be accomplished using the "run script" and have the the event get piped into a script that calls growlnotify to display it instead of dropping this applescript in iCal.app folder. I still prefer using remind and piping it to growlnotify and having cron pop it up every 15 minutes to see what is on my event and task list (and a keyboard shortcut to have it popup as well).

Create Growl notifications from iCal events

The problem with launching an AppleScript (if I recall correctly) is that iCal offers no way to pass the event information to an AppleScript, and you therefore get very little information in your growl notification.
