Not a problem.  Glad to offer data you find useful.

I'm personally hoping to develop locally some uncomplicated and robust
way to add iCal format and syndication -- including the event items
your script currently bails on, and with proper handling of year

Excuse me?  Do you think I _like_ PHP?  You would be mistaken.  I 
think it's rather loathsome.

I don't like either that language or dynamic Web content.  

In the alternative, you might have been frantically overparsing my
mentioning of Deirdre's recently announced intention to write a MySQL ->
iCal parser in Ruby.  I mentioned that merely because it's so, and
because the fact seemed relevant:  I could not possibly care less about
what coding languages you like or dislike, and "baiting" anyone on that
subject wouldn't have occurred to me at all.
