Calendaring solution

Given:
-- I won't carry around a PDA
-- I'm always around a computer, and my cellphone has net access
-- I'm always logged into danga.com for my mail
-- Nothing on Linux supports calendar syncing well
-- The Apple store closes at 6pm on Sundays

Solution:

* one of my screen windows on danga is now running "emacs ~/calendar.txt".

* I put private data I don't want to share with the world in braces.

* cron is doing:
cat calendar.txt | perl -npe 's/\{.*\}/XXXXX/g' > bradfitz.com/htdocs/calendar.txt

Elegant!
