I choose to not rely on proprietary software, and in particular not on
proprietary software that isn't even running on my own computers.  I'm
glad you like and enjoy third-party-hosted proprietary software.  I
don't, and merely seek to be clear about that.

I do have PHP iCalendar already set up.  See:
http://linuxmafia.com/calendar/ .  It's the best offering I have yet
found for displaying iCal files -- but as such I find its presentation
of data to be aesthetically pleasing but markedly inferior at conveying
useful information, compared to what BALE in either its manual or
PHP/MySQL-driven variants provides.

I also happen to prefer my own judgement as to event selection and
description.  (To each his own.)  But thank you.
