<13 June: found out that there *is* an AppleScript dictionary accesable in XCode/Studio for iCal; the optimal solution may involve gluing some AppleScript to code, or even all-applescript if it can do the heavy lifting req. for analyizing 4 years of daily cal data (like 1500 entries i imagine)> Good day. I'm an avid user of Macs & have been since 1986. While i've loaded X Code... Here's the idea: iCal and Google Cal use the same or similar formats for their calendars. Cal Insights would take on an idea that Quicken Insights poses: what does my calendar **mean**. An abstraction that boils down the calendar into stats. It would (first do NO harm to iCal calendars) patch iCal (we'll talk Google cal in second phase if it comes to fruition) so that when you click on a certain calendar (left pane) all that blank white space would become a "spotlight" like analytic pane. If a patch isn't feasable, then a separate Cocoa app that can be the front end to scripting or other goodness or in Objective C. Another idea would be to generate for export the above analytic (how much time spent at a task according to the calender entry heading; top five for day/week/month/quarter/year/all calendar) so people could use it for time accounting for tasks. One other idea: use Sparkle Plus or whatever's better to auto-update the code: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] This is just COOL: script/AppleScript Heads Look! [url removed, login to view] The spark for this is that *i* want to know how much time i spend sitting in Peet's Coffee & Tea; i have the records in iCal but no "big picture." Thanks for reading, Jim R.
