A Calendar Bird’s Eye View

I’ve been using my company’s paper calendar (the ones they distribute) to mark my project’s research, development schedules, deployment phases, support events, appointments, personal events, holidays, whatever. I like to have a view of the whole year; visualising the months ahead is great to preview stuff, but looking back at the past months is great to see where you’re at.

Amazingly, I can’t get this view in Apple’s iCal, the further it goes is one month view. This means I’ve nerver used it. I’ll be looking at other software alternatives (as soon as I can find the time to do so) and see if I can move away from paper… any sugestions?
