Actually, Thankyou. I am not able (yet) to contribute to the development 
end of things, But a big THANK YOU to all of you who work behind the 
scenes to allow people like me to get involved in open source and try 
things out. I showed this to my boss and he's up for testing it out in 
the library for equipment reservation and shared calendars for 
administrative staff... at this point.
