Just a quick note to pass on a new web app that I recently stumbled onto. OK, I spend time searching for all the cool tools.
Doodle.com is an online application to ease the burden of creating meetings with others. Forget the back-and-forth emails to schedule an appointment with someone, just send them your personal doodle link and they can view your availability and even schedule times to meet up with you using this very simple interface.
I have it hooked up to my google account, so that it stays in sync with my google calendars. No fuss, no mess.
