The open source folks at Mozilla have a decent stand alone calendar, Sunbird.
Sunbird download

My favorite is the ReminderFox extension for Firefox.

I've used the Google calendar and it's good also - as is Sunbird. All are easy to use and customizable to your needs.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I use Chaos Manager which is freeware. You can find it here. The latest version was just released yesterday.

Chaos Manager key features.

Appointment manager, a reminder pops-up and plays a random wav-file when an appointment has reached it's deadline or reminder setting (optional).
Contacts (address book/phone book and more).
Notebook that supports multiple topics.
Notebook supports text formatting (rich text format) and URL detection (links will be highlighted and clickable).
Calendar (for appointments & birthdays etc).
National holidays and observances can be downloaded (or created) for the calendar.
When moving mouse over a calendar date you will get a quick summary of the events of that specific date.
Find... search appointments, notebook and contacts (all fields).
Optional password protection.
Data encryption so no one can peak into the data files.
Simple look and feel and easy to use.
Optional recurring appointments.
A reminder can be configured to pop-up before an appointment has reached it's deadline.
Snooze option when reminder pops-up.
Optional email forwarding of appointments.
Customize program layout (background, font, resizable etc).

Thats just a partial list of features.

Be (What Day is it again??) Safe :thumbsup:
