    I'm not sure if anyone already does this but the (relatively) new AJAX website 30boxes.com has the ability to have its contents sync'ed with iCal. I was experimenting with it and I was able to "see" the contents of my 30boxes calendar at iCal. Pretty handy for .Mac-less Mac users like me. :)

    BTW, 30boxes is an online calendar website (think Yahoo! Calendar) that allows a user to "share" his/her calendar with buddies.

    EDIT: It turns out that the *other* AJAX calendar website called spongecell also has this capability! And unlike 30boxes, spongecell can import existing entries at iCal. Its nice to have freedom of choice! :cool:

    Was just playing with 30boxes a few minutes ago. Looks like a great service.

    I have a question though. I'd love to do the opposite and to up a calendar I made on iCal and export it to 30boxes.

    I haven't figured out how to do it or if it's possible.

    Would you know how to do it?

    Gabe,

    I was not able to do it on 30boxes. Spongecell, on the other hand, can import data from iCal (at least that's what it say on its website).

    HTH

    I tried 30boxes...it's fine but whenever I try to add an event, the event gets added to a day before the date I set. What am I doing wrong?

    Haven't tried the program but maybe it's with the timezone selected. Check whether you have the correct time zones set in iCal and 30boxes.

    I actually noticed it too. All I do is simply edit the entry to fix it.
