fbCal added, but not showing in Google Calendar
(1) set up the calendar in Google as you normally would using fbCal ("F");
(2) go into the settings for F, and click on the fbcalendar.com url, which will cause you to download an .ics file;
(3) open this .ics file in Word or another program capable of saving in various flavors of txt (not notepad);
(4) save it as text, and when asked what type of text, select Windows (I don't know offhand what the equivalents would be under Mac or Linux; sorry --basically you've got to get line breaks represented in a particular way there);
(5) rename the extension to .ics,
(6) create a new calendar in google and upload the modified .ics file into that calendar (you probably don't want to upload it into an existing calendar, or you'll make a mess)
That should do it as far as getting it into google; of course, it's manual, and kind of a pain, and would have to be periodically updated as you get new FB friends.
I don't know yet whether the this manually-created calendar will then sync to my iphone, but if there's a problem, that's another issue.
in other words, the start and end dates are the same (above, May 8, 1975)
Google, or at least the iphone, expects the end date of an all-day event to be one day later, or as follows:
With a little tweaking, I produced an ics file that would sync between google and my iphone.
Sorry to go off-topic, but it seems like the issues are not completely unrelated, and have to do with getting the full utility out of the fbCal-Google connection (and for me, Google Cal has got to talk to my iphone over exchange).
Thank you for reporting. Yes there is a problem with Google Calendar and we are in touch with them. The Google team was able to reproduce the error and is working on it to fix it. They told us not to change anything on our side as it was Google Calendar related. I know it does not help you very much, but we cannot do anything else at the moment. We are waiting for their feedback. Frédéric
So, Google is aware of it, its just a waiting game now.
