Events app

A little app using google data calendar api: At the moment anyone with a google account can add events and therefore I had to disable the 'edit entry' and 'delete entry' functionality. Need to get my head around the authentication particulary access control. I spent around 30 hours coding the thing (including learning from scratch the necessary apis).

Compiling Python2.5 on Leopard

I had some bother with compiling python2.5 on Leopard. But with the help of Andreas Jung I finally got it to work as I'd like. For what it's worth I've created a shell script for the process. It also includes installing easy_install, lxml and mx packages. (There was a problem with mxExperimental which is fixed with the development snapshot - thanks Marc-Andre.)
