[pmwiki-users] GCalendar includeurl

Update -- you can edit and add things to an included gCalendar pmwiki 
page if you've got permission.  Just click on the date/time and do your 
thing.  If you've got a gmail account, and have permission to edit the 
calendard, it seems you'll be automatically loaded into the edit page.  
Kind of slick... IMHO. 

It's basically as seamless as pmwiki calendar editing, except you've got 
the full power of a modern calendar that you can share across the web 
with others via various automated pathways.   Way cool. 

Also, in a somewhat side related observation/discovery, if you've added 
the calendar extension to Thunderbird email, you can add gCalendars to 
Thunderbird by copy and pasting the vcal address in gCalendar in the 
gCalendars details page to in the 'new' calendar option in Thunderbird.  
You can edit stuff on your gCalendar directly in Thunderbird this way. 

I'm kind of thinking I'm going to trade out the pmwiki calendars for a 
gCalendar page on several of my various wikis.
