Is there a way to pipe a remote calendar through a script?
I have written a script that put the correct TZID tags in place but I can't
pipe the remote calendar through it.
if there is any other solution that can be implemented in my side that would
be great, since the ics files comes from a web site I don;t think the format
will change anytime soon.
