Calendar Editing and Syncing Between Two Mac Users

I'd like to sync a shared event/appointment calendar with a work colleague, which we both can edit (not just view) on our iMac computers, preferably without having to go to an external website to make edits, or paying for an outside service. Details within. [more inside]

Copying between iCal calendars, Exchange to Google.

I have a work calendar in Exchange. I also have an Android phone and a Mac. For the last couple of years I've been using Spanning Sync to copy entries from my Exchange calendar to a Google calendar and then on my phone I can see all my calendars using the built in calendar program ( I also use Touchdown so I can see my exchange calendar on my phone if I have to, but it doesn't integrate with the phone calendars so I have to use two different applications to see my entire calendar, which is a pain). The problem is that Spanning Sync is going away. Is there any other application or service out there that'll automatically copy entries from one iCal calendar to another?

How to get an xml file (online calendar feed) to auto update to iCal or any other calendar?

How can I sync an online calendar feed (xml) with either iCal or Google Calendar? I know I can sync iCal and gCalendar easily through several methods. But what I also need to include is my department's events calendar. I can import it as an iCal or Outlook file, but this is only a one-time option. Once the department's calendar is updated I don't receive the new or changed events. And I suspect if I import the (newer) file again, I will get many duplicates. The calendar has an xml feed I could subscribe to, but can't figure out how to translate this into a calendar that automatically syncs or updates. Willing to consider any options that would lead to the online calendar (.ics, .csv, or .xml file) being auto updated to any calendar application. This would make my life so much easier! Thanks!

iCal/Google Calendar privacy

Is there a way to sync Google Calendar to my iCal, but make all events appear like iCal private events in Google Calendar? I want to share my Google Calendar so that others will see when I am on a business trip or in a meeting, but they shouldn't see where I am or what the topic of the meeting is.

three months of iCal data missing

iCal disaster. All records before a certain date are gone. This is true -- and the date in question is the same in each case -- for all my daily iCal backups over the last 30 days. I urgently need to recover these records if possible. [more inside]

Can I sync my Palm Zire memos to my iBook?

I have a Palm Zire that I sync with my iBook. Calendar and To Dos sync with iCal and Address Books sync well, but I have to view my memos in the big bloated Palm Desktop. Is there an app for Mac to sync with Memos? Version Tracker has this but I have always disliked Stickies, and would prefer a nice little app with a list of my memos all in one place if such a thing exists. Suggestions?

How can I sync my Palm Tungsten C with Mozilla Calendar on Windows XP?

I want to sync my Palm Tungsten C with Mozilla Calendar (running on Windows XP). I know there's no conduit for Mozilla Calendar, but since it stores stuff in ical format I figure there must be *some* way to do this. Any ideas? Alternately, can anyone recommend a good Windows PIM that can sync with my Palm AND publish an ical?
