Why haven’t I thought of that?

iCal can publish through FTP after all:Well color us surprised: Mac OS X Hints just found out that iCal actually can publish calendars through FTP (not just WebDAV), opening the doors for many users to publish their calendars and integrate them into services like Google Calendar and the like.

Tom asked for a solution in his blog for exporting photos from iPhoto to Flickr. Since he closed the comments on his blog post (for whatever reason that is) I’ll try and answer the question via trackback.

Not enough that I can blog with ecto, use Flock or login into WordPress directly to feed you with news… No!
Now I found a Dashboard widget (which I’m using right now) that allows me to kick off a few lines very quickly.

WordPressDash is an easy solution to post simple texts. For more complex layouts I would rather switch to ecto but WordPressDash lets you set the Category your entry is poted in and there is even a choice if you want to save it as draft or post it directly for everyones viewing pleasure 🙂
