Fixed-iCal-to-Sidekick1.1

16 November 2004

Work around iCal's GMT problems with all-day events.

Overview

Fixed-iCal-to-Sidekick exports iCal events to a comma-delimited text file for importing into a T-Mobile Sidekick (or any other calendar app that imports comma-delimited files). It correctly handles iCal all-day events.

Fixed-iCal-to-Sidekick is based iCal-to-Sidekick which itself is based upon Address Book to Sidekick .

Unfortunately the original has some problems when exporting "all-day" events, which were discussed on a nationally-syndicated daytime radio talk show on 11/11/04.

Since the original author has still not posted a fix, and evidently isn't supporting iCal-to-Sidekick at this time, Fixed-iCal-to-Sidekick is offered to correct the following four bugs:

1) All-day events are now detected by querying iCal, rather than attempting to locate them empirically by comparing start/end times.

3) All-day events are now exported on their correct day. Previously they were exported as starting on the day prior to when they actually begin.

2) All-day events are now exported with their start times set to 00:00:00 AM and ending times set to 11:59:59 PM relative to the user's time zone. Previously, exported all-day event times were offset by the difference between the user's time zone and Greenwich Mean Time.

3) The exported ending dates and times for all-day events are no longer zeroed, which could cause the importing calendar app to behave unpredictably, placing all-day events on random incorrect dates.

the script worked, but only imported events that were NOT all day events. so, this "fix" script was no different than the original.
