calendar import not working from (possibly redirection problem)

I don't seem to be able to use the calendar provided by, it looks like the actual ics file is a redirection of some sort.

The link on the site is:

but when I manually download the filename changes to iCalendar_dates_2013-09-13_21-09-23.ics, I can then import this manually downloaded file to my windows live calendar to make it work, but it is frequently updated so I would have to do that every time. Any chance this could be accomplished within the gadget?

Hi, there were several issues combined:
  • the gadget needed to have http:// at the beginning of the url (fixed)
  • the gadget had troubles if you had empty characters at the end (fixed)
  • the gadget was added a numeric query string after the url in order to avoid caching (fixed - but it may cause lower sensitivity on changes in your source calendar)
I've created a special build fixing this issue. Please go ahead and try it and if it works, I will release it as stable. Here it is:

Thank you!
