Getting the college of law calendar

For those who wish to get the CoL timetable on Google calendar/Outlook etc without having to type it all in manually: it can be done from the Groupwise application. It is is locked down, but there is a workaround.

1. Type mailto:// in Internet Explorer, this runs grpwise.exe
2. Right click on the calendar and select export
3. Edit Calendar.ics to remove the UIDs (they are not Unique, so they confuse Google Calendar). Quick way: sed '/UID:.*/d' Calendar.ics > newcal.ics
4. Upload to Google Calendar, profit
