A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

BBC Programme Calendar to iCal Works in Outlook 2007

A little while ago, I created a mini mash up that used the BBC’s programme API to find programs with a specific keyword in and then convert that data into an iCal file.

I thought it would be a good test to see if Outlook 2007 can import the date from the mash-up. The good news is that it can, and it is easy to do.

Simply go to your account settings menu, and then click on the internet calendars tab, click "new" and then enter the URL for the programme timetable that you want to see. [http://www.kinlan.co.uk/bbc/football]. Outlook does the rest!
