Thank you Bill,

The original poster, Tim, sent me this link.  I was unable to find out 
anything about who publishes this, however.  Thanks for providing some 

Next question..I use the calendar feature in the Thunderbird e-mail 
client (lightning) and the DX calendar displays just fine.  I wonder if 
there is a way to set this up so that it automatically refreshes the 
.iCal file?  Anyone know how this is done or if it is possible?
