Now Up-To-Date company closing

Now Up-To-Date, an obscure calendar/contact management system for Mac and Windows, is heading into history with the recent announcement that publisher Now Software is closing its doors. I only wrote about it once here, way back in 2005. BusyMac has a way to migrate Now Up-To-Date users to the Mac-only BusyCal.

iSchedule draft published at the IETF

From July 2008:

The iSchedule Technical Committee will develop a proposal for the Internet Scheduling Protocol (iSchedule) which will specify a binding from the iCalendar Transport-independent Interoperability Protocol (iTIP) to the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

March 8, 2010: The first draft proposal for iSchedule is published by the Internet Engineering Task Force.

Calendar standards folks, feel free to explain the significance of this in the comments to this post!

Amahi home network calendar sharing

FLOSS Weekly just posted a show about Amahi, a home network calendar sharing server.

Has anyone reading Calendar Swamp installed Amahi? If so, please post a comment here.
