Copy Calcium web calendars back into iCal Apps

We've been using Calcium, the web-based shared calendaring software from Brown Bear Software, for some time now. It works very well, especially for a distributed organisation like ours, and the support from the Brown Bear staff is superb.

Until recently, however, I couldn't see my appointments except when connected to the net. Not really a problem - I'm almost always online. But the latest Calcium allows me to access our calendars in iCalendar format, meaning that I can subscribe to them with iCal (or Mozilla Calendar). Now, not only do I have a (read-only) copy of the corporate calendar with me on my laptop, but also, through the magic of iSync, on my iPod. Very sweet! And Calcium can also subscribe to published iCal calendars - it calls them 'Add-Ins' - so you can create content from your Mac.

I have no connection with Brown Bear except as a satisfied customer.

Can you give some details about how this works? My department uses Calcium and I'd love to subscribe to our calendar. Where is the .ics file?

If you use their hosted service, I think all the hosted installations have been upgraded to support this. You do have to put the password into the URL if the calendar is password-protected, but it should be something along the lines of:

webcal://yourcalendarurl?CalendarName=calname&Op=iCalSubscribe&User=username&Password=password&x=1
If you run your own server, you may need an update to Calcium to make this work?

Is there any feature that calcium offers that <a href="http://webcalendar.sourceforge.net"> Webcalendar</a> doesn't? Seems very similar except webcalendar is a sourceforge project and it is free.
