As predicted, now that Google Calendar is out (via Forever Geek), I'm making the switch from 30 Boxes. At first I wasn't sure how I was going to do it because I couldn't see anything about exporting my current calendar at 30 Boxes. However, after finding some websites that offered proof it is indeed possible, I wandered into the "Syndication" area of the "Your Settings" area and found the links to the .ical and .csv files. Initially I tried importing the .ical file into Google Calendar, but that didn't bring everything over for some reason. In fact, while it said it imported 18 items, I was only able to find one on my calendar after the import. I tried exporting to .csv from 30 Boxes next, though, and importing that into Google Calendar seemed to do the trick. I lost all the recurrence information, but that's not that big a deal. Luckily for me, I haven't been using 30 Boxes long enough to have enough old data to make the switch a pain. I'm now officially rolled over to Google Calendar and will doubtless be posting again once I get a better feel for it.

And thus continues my everlasting quest for an organized life.
