desktop app 99% of the time

mostly as calendar, we're trying to use it to plan the Holiday Party

mostly for work; home calendar is too complicated to switch at the

just calendars for now, we're just starting to use it to share tasks/ 
notes for Holiday Party Planning.

right now, it's just on one machine, but I may try to share with  
myself across multiple machines, but that would involve re-subscribing  
to 6 different collections

not sure if this counts as a feature, but I would LOVE to be able to  
schedule conference rooms via Chandler.  I remember seeing a  
discussion a week or two ago and it seemed complicated.
> 8. What top 3 bugs do you think are the most important to fix?
I don't know if these are necessarily bugs or feature requests, but  
here goes:
  - sometimes, when I try to delete an item, it won't go away.  It  
does go away if I select the item and drag it into the Trash collection
  - when I need to add a new appointment, and there is already another  
appointment in that spot (not necessarily in the same collection)  
clicking in the time slot where I need to add the new appointment will  
select the appointment already there, but it won't let me add another  
item on top of it.  So what I end up doing now is I add the  
appointment in a random open slot, and then move it.  This isn't  
awful, but when I need to do a lot of calendaring and adding/deleting/ 
moving appointments, it does get kind of tedious.
  - It would be great if the application was a little faster - when I  
add new items, sometimes it takes a few minutes for the "new event"  
box to show up, and sometimes a single click will do while other  
times, I need to click multiple times.  Sometimes, I double click and  
I end up with two events, and then I can't delete them without  
dragging them into the trash collection.  It could be that my  
collection is too big which would make it slow too...

no - but I also haven't looked much.
