Many years after most users I have jumped on the iCal train too. I’ve dumped my very old Palm and started using iCal as my main calendar.
But iCal itself is not good enough:
- it doesn’t know how to calculate Easter. For this I have subscribed (free!) to project24, which is very nice for Swiss holidays (for German and Austrian ones too).
- it doesn’t show the week number. project24 comes to the rescue again.
- I want to print/export real lists, not just empty boxes with a date. Some calenders have less than one event per week and I wanted a list with all events. All iCal does is filling pages with empty days and once in a while a day with an event.
Clay Spinuzzi mentions the Ruby iCal module, which did the trick for me.
What I haven’t got working yet: iSync limits the calendar period that is copied to my mobile to 8 weeks and I haven’t found any hidden plist entry or any other hack to fix that.
