Badi Calendar ics file. [Feb 23, 2015; version.6]
"I have made an .ics file containing all the data published by the House of Justice for the Badi Calendar, starting at Naw-Ruz 172 and running to the last day of 'Ala' 221. It will open in any compliant application, such as Microsoft Outlook or Mac Calendar, and can be synchronized with iPads and iPhones (and presumably other tablets and mobile/cell phones) via the Cloud.
"Although I have been able to use a web application to make the .ics file, the task has nevertheless been a laborious one. It will therefore please me greatly if the file can be circulated as widely as possible, thereby avoiding any duplication of my individual effort; please consider it an early Ayyam-í-Há gift. I have done my best to check the file for errors, but to do so thoroughly would be to repeat the original work without any more guarantee that the corrected version is flawless. Individual corrections can be made within a given calendar application, but I shall be more than happy to receive notifications of errors so that my copy can be made as near perfect as possible." ~Nicholas Sanders
All thanks and suggestions can be made directly to Nicholas Sanders by email. We cannot take any responsibility for this file, its application or anything else. We are not qualified to advise you as to how to use it as we are still figuring that out ourselves. We simply offer a platform to assist the friends in its dissemination.
