Publish iCal calendars without .Mac
Authored by: osxpounder on Jun 20, '06 03:38:55PM

I think I got "publish" and "sync" confused, because I got all excited when I first saw this hint, thinking I'd finally be able to keep my iCal sync'd without a .Mac account.

I tried publishing, though, and the big drawback I saw was that I can't change the calendar I subscribe to.

I have an iPod -- isn't that supposed to sync iCals for me? I was already using iCal on 3 different Macs before I got the iPod, which might explain why I haven't found the magic combo of preferences that will just sync the iCal for any of these machines.

What clown decided that the iPod calendar view didn't need to show you the Location field? I guess they always use the same room at Apple.

Just posting here must have lit a fire under me, because I think I just figured it out. Looks like I have 2 Macs synchronizing via iPod. I think the key was to delete all iCal calendars from one Mac's iCal, then import .ics files from the other computer. Now each computer has same cal files to start with, and it looks like it's synchronizing. I'll know for sure in a few days, when my iCals either stay synced or don't.

What clown designed the iPod calendar reminder, which won't show you the Location field? Guess they always meet in the same room at Apple?
