If you're on OS X I bet you have to have your "permissions" fixed.
That seems to be the root cause of OS X crises from what I've just learned.
Its Greek to me I had to get a consultant to work wizardry right in front of
my eyes.
I had no clue what he was up to and I've got the downloaded shareware to do
it some more.
Still cant get this "Entourage" to print calendars, but a slew of other of a
sudden burgeoning issues magically disappeared.
