Jon Udell recently wrote about accessing the BBC programming schedules but was put-off by the lack of time zone information in the iCalendar feeds, which prompted me to fix the quick-and-dirty script I have that generates iCalendar files for the BBC. (I wrote the first, time zone-blind version of my script in England’s Winter and it worked just perfick back then!)
So I fix it. The updated iCalendar files have events with time zone information.
Jon Udell’s use of Python to explore data manipulation on the Web was one of the reasons I thought I really ought to get stuck into Python.
