Quick Full Screen in DVD Player!

There is a known quick keyboard shortcut to go to full screen in DVD Player and that is "Command-0" (that's a zero). Another one that I really like and that is unadvertised however is with the mouse. It doesn't work when you are in the Menu of the DVD, but it works when watching the video. You can just double-click on the video and it will switch to full screen. Double-clicking again will bring you back to a window view. QuickTime's behaviors is much different, it will instead play/pause the video.

I am currently working on an awesome Automator script that makes the iCal icon follow the date (like it should!). I might post it tomorrow if it is ready!

I hate to fast forward to your iCal tip, but is there a way to sync my google calender and iCal (without cutting and paisting each event)?

I know about iConiCal. I am using the app in the script. It is just not well automated. That why I complement it with Automator.
