Hmmm,  I may have to take a look at that.  Esp. since I'm already 
running apache on my laptop for other development stuff I'm doing.

Hmmm, I don't know if I need anymore e-mail :)  But that'll work :)

I'm not trying to integrate it with Outlook/Exchange.  I get my 
e-mail off of an Exchange server via fetchmail.  As a result, I get a 
lot of meeting requests which are formatted to be slurped into an 
Outlook calendar automatically.  Since I'm not using Outlook, this 
does me no good.  However, I can use procmail to automatically update 
any other calendar of my choosing if that calendar easily allows me 
to.  A simple file format is good, since if I have to write my own 
interface app, the easier the format, the simpler the app.


        It may look like I'm just sitting here doing nothing,
   but I'm really actively waiting for all my problems to go away.

              Have you appreciated your SysAdmin today?

         If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right!
