It’s no secret to readers of this blog and RJ.org that I’ve got a little obsession with Jewish time of late. I counted the Omer here at the Shuckle earlier this year and I’ve just hung my Heeb Magazine Ladies of ’69 Israeli models Hebrew calendar in my dorm room.
It’s also no secret to my friends and family that I’ve got a Google obsession. I use Gmail for all my email needs, openly dissing other webmail services, and I use Google Reader for all my rss needs, sometimes becoming positively evangelical about Google’s rss-feeding webapp. And not, it’s time for another.
I’ve recently become interested in becoming an organized person. I’m on the verge of having the most over-comitted, not-enough-David-to-go-around semster I’ve ever had and, by God, I’ve got to find some way to keep myself informed of all my commitments.
Last night, Google Calendar came into my life.
This is better for me any other calendar I’ve investigated before because, one, it’s Google, and, two, it emails me reminders. Three, it can even alert my via Google Reader in an rss feed!
And, baruch haShem, it just gets better. If you head on over to one of my favorite websites, hebcal.com, you can create a custom calendar of the entire Jewish year including varying degrees of holidays, Torah portions, Hebrew dates, roshei chodesh, etc. Then, holy mindsplosions, Batman, you can export the calendar you created with hebcal as an iCalendar file and import it into your Google Calendar, as you can see above!
Shabat Shalom, jblogosphere.
