Heidi: You just made my day. I hadn't realized we could run that through
libcal. We have a couple calendars through them but have never used them. I
have the weekly javascript option (like Nick mentioned) running our Today's
Hours now and I'm so excited that I'll be able to set it and forget it for
the whole year (instead of changing every time there's a schedule deviation
- and then changing back.)

woohoo!
