Poker tournament calendar

I've been playing around with Google Calendar. It's somewhat annoying that you can't just look at somebody's calendar on their web site, you have to sign up for the service and then view the calendar as an import.

Since I appear to have deleted my text-file calendar of evening Stud/8, Omaha/8, and other non-HE tournaments I've tried recreating it here: (ICAL format)

Also, it appears that the pop-up notifications are based on the client computer's time and timezone rather than the one the calendar is set to. So if your calendar is Eastern time (useful since many poker sites operate on it) but your computer clock is Pacific or Central, you get the notifications too late to be of any use.

I didn't find any poker calendars that were useful, other than a WSOP event calendar (that has the start times incorrect...) I decided it wasn't worth writing a tool to grab the PokerStars tournament schedule and automatically upload it.
