Here are the settings that are working for me to allow public access to my webcalendar for some events. WebCalendar 1.0.4.
I’m still having problems with both public entries being duplicated when both Darrell and Public are participants. This does not occur on a test site that I have, but the live site shows this. Currently I can get around this by only having one participant [public access] for public items. Not sure why the test site shows only one entry and the live site shows two.
After using Chaos Manager calendar for the past year or so, I wanted to start with a web calendar so I could access the calendar from multiple systems. Web Calendar looks like the simplest and most reasonable free solution based on php and mysql.
After some study, writing a new import method wasn’t that hard. The enclosed zip file contains two modified php files and a new import file. It worked to import about 130 events into WebCalendar 1.0.4.
I never used repeating events, so no provision is made to import repeating events into WebCalendar.
Chaos Manager has some limitations.
- It cannot be accessed from multiple systems, although it will synch up with a PDA.
- It does not store event durations, but only an event time.
- For some reason, Chaos Manager csv files are not comma delimited but semi-colon delimited.

Late last year I purchased an Epson R200 printer that can print on CDs and DVDs. I wrote an article over in the boards and showed some pictures.
I’ve been using the printer to label movie DVDs for a while, but the problem of labeling data DVDs has eluded me. Here’s a solution, and since the printer has a high resolution, it works quite well.
Even the full size as rendered here is not easy to read, but the DVD itself can be read quite easily, although you may need to use a loupe to do it.
I just brought up the DVD in the explorer and then did screen cuts from the folder tree. Arranged in a reasonable way around the DVD label, the contents of the DVD are easily summarized. Of course, the best thing to do is also index the DVDs for easy searching later. This article describes my experiences with Google desktop and SpindleSearch.
Here are some of the ideas from a talk by Eli Yablonovitch, UCLA, regarding the future developments semiconductor technology and its impact on Physics, Economics and Sociology. From his lecture on 25 October 2005 at UCLA. Here is a link to Eli Yablonovitch’s UCLA page.
In addition to a history of semiconductor industry growth, and feature shrinkage, there are some surprising points he makes in this talk:

A part of the Geodesic program for WIN MFC and OpenGL has been ported to Linux / KDevelop / Qt / OpenGL. It creates and displays a gear object and there are many parameters to change the shape of the gear. The program will be able to export OBJ or POV files of the shape of the gear. It can serve as a complex tutorial of using OpenGL and many other features of
the KDE and Qt frameworks.
There is a properties dialog with a large number of input fields as follows:
Here is the header definition for the data.
Work continues with SUSE 10.1 Linux both in configuring the system and in learning to use the KDevelop IDE for C++ programming. There are several interesting items to mention:
- Overlay planes
- Wacom Tablets
- KDevelop glitches
- .ICEAuthority lockouts
- GAIM messenger
- CD backups
When setting up a test website using Apache 2, php5 and mysql5, the connection to the database failed with AccessDenied. If the password were removed, then the failure looked different. The resolution to the problem is to include localhost explicitly in the host list and set database privileges for localhost. The default is @% which is wildcard, but apparently wildcard does not include localhost.
