Lets keep track...

The cricket world cup is round the corner and it would help those of us who don't have the luxury of being bombarded by the media to have some simple way of keeping track of the match dates. :-) Here is something I got via email yesterday. I am sure we will have more or better tools showing up in the coming days, but we need to start somewhere.

Here we have the outlook calendar integration file which helps have the World Cup schedule in your Outlook.

Steps to integration: {Tested and working}

1. Download the .ics file

2. Open up Microsoft Outlook and from the 'File' menu select 'Import and Export'

3. From the next menu, select 'Import an iCalendar or vCalendar file (.vcs)'

4. Select the calendar file and upload

5. The tour schedule will now be sitting in your Outlook Calendar

Warning: The matches will come up as huge blocks in your Outlook Calendar. So, if you are in a corporate environment and have your calendar shared, you may not want to have your boss know that he cannot call you into a meeting because you are scheduled to see a cricket match. :-)
