  • There's a hint of "security through obscurity" here: If you don't know the name of a calendar file, you won't be able to subscribe to it. However, you can see a list of available calendars through the calendar viewing page described in the next section. Just take the name you see on that page, add https://www.nevis.columbia.edu/calendar/ before it, add .ics after it, and you have the name to which you can subscribe.

    If this trick doesn't work, it means the calendar is hosted by CalDAV; see above.

  • The navigation buttons and links are not as intuitive as I would like. For one thing, they're all at the bottom of the web page; scroll down if you don't see them. (I'm using the PHP iCalendar package.)
