Linux Calendar

I'm looking for a Linux-based calendar program a la Calendar Creator. You'd think that someone would have done something like this already, but I sure can't find it. I've found a ton of groupware-style calendaring systems that involve PHP/MySQL or ones that work with PDAs. I just want to create a basic calendar with little versions of the previous and next month's calendars in the corners. Right now, I'm using a macro that came with WordPerfect for DOS that does this great. It's a little annoying to create it in DOS (running under Win98) and then import it into WP for Linux (praying that it doesn't crash, which it seems to like to do). I've seen a couple of things for OpenOffice. One used the spreadsheet part, which is clunky for editing. The other used the word processor, but you had to hand-edit the dates and there was not previous/next month's calendars. Any help out there? The only requirement would be that it would work in Linux. Open source would also be nice.

Free Opera Registrations

The Opera team is celebrating their 10th anniversary by giving away registrations for their popular web browser. Why not snag one? I like using as many browsers as possible when I'm designing pages so I can make sure everything works properly.

Pondering the Imponderable

Why does it always happen this way? The Lions finally get on national television (yeah, it's pre-season, but still . . .) and they stink up the joint, guaranteeing that they won't be on national television for another three-odd years. I think the new alternate black jerseys looked sweet. Too bad that the team inside of them looked so ugly.

We had our fantasy football draft on Sunday. LaDainian Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander, and Peyton Manning were all held over from the previous year. Yet somehow I still managed to get Priest Holmes with the third pick! It's either going to be a good year or Holmes is going to blow out a knee in week 2. I've got a pretty solid team. Of course, every team looks solid in the pre-season.
