Thousands of Shared iCal Calendars

I made a post yesterday about how you can use iCal to subscribe to new movie releases. Sean Corfield mentioned that he is subscribed to US and Indian holiday calendars, which got me wondering what other calendars were available out there. Apparently there are thousands. It looks like the two big repositories are the Apple iCal Library, and iCalShare. Very cool stuff. I’m now subscribed to US holidays (I never know when it’s a holiday, and I sometimes go to work when Macromedia is closed), and a video game related calendar.

Is there something similar out there for Outlook users? Yesterday, Dan mentioned WinDates which looks like a good solution, although personally, I would recommend just switching to a Mac. 🙂

    Sounds like Ray Camden’s iCal CFC is going to be getting a lot of use when it’s done.

  2. Do note you can use Sunbird w/ iCal crap as well.

  3. Oh, and you can use iCalx.com to host your data.

    iCalx.com is pretty good. i used it to post a calendar for my band, and those of us that had macs used iCal, and the ones that didn’t could use Firefox with an extension that lets you view iCal files. can’t remember what it was called though, i have it on my PC not my mac.

    you do know that icu4j has a pretty decent holidays class? it handles most us/canadian/european holidays as well as easter & hebrew ones. and there is supposed to be a retired international bank s/w guy working to beef up this class big time.i just looked thru the icalshare calendar for thailand & its missing quite a few holidays (easy to spot, this month is chock full of holidays).
