Reflections on Man United, iCal, and a life well lived
Category : Commentary/ManUtdiCal.txt
I thought there would be something like this - Manchester United's fixtures on iCalShare.com (where you can also find Arsenal's fixtures if you follow the gooners). This is what I now have on iCal.
See what I mean about how the technology is helping us to merge work life with the rest of our lives.
The calendar with the orange tab, above, shows the Singapore Public Holidays. You definitely don't want to schedule a business meeting on a holiday. And my wife updates an Appointments calendar for me, when she needs me to know when I have things to do for the family. I also publish my work calendar, of course, so that's where she goes to get an idea of my schedule.
It's all very easy to set up, if you have your own server. iCal calendars are published using WebDav servers and it's not that difficult to turn on WebDav support using the Apache web server that Apple builds into every OS X machine.
It's the little things that count, and these little things do add up to quite a lot, if what you're looking for is a quality life, or a life well-lived.
