Remembering James Harder, RIP

Harwich, Mass. — James D.R. Harder, a New York actor, died on Friday, Jan. 9, 2009. A graduate of the Buckley School, St. Mark's and Princeton, he had resided in Harwich for the past 10 years.

Jim is survived by his beloved wife of 48 years, Dorothy; a daughter, Elizabeth; son-in-law, Mark Ameres; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

As an actor, he appeared in more than 130 stage productions, many television shows and movies, and made more than 3,000 commercials. He was always tickled when Cape residents recognized him as the Big Fig from the Nabisco Fig Newton commercials of the 1970s.

There will be memorial services in Cape Cod and New York City.

 - The videos from http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=mameres&view=playlists

Meetomatic vs Doodle vs WhenIsGood - multilingual meeting scheduler

I was looking to find a good common mtg time for some friends and stumbled on Doodle - a multilingual meeting scheduler. Meetomatic has a similar function that I found via: Fortnightly Mailing 

I also just found WhenIsGood

Can you recommend others?  Which do you prefer?
