That'll be $1,000 plus GST paid to Toby thanks!
The story goes that Picasso was sitting in a Paris café when an
admirer approached and asked if he would do a quick sketch on a paper
napkin. Picasso politely agreed, swiftly executed the work, and handed
back the napkin — but not before asking for a rather significant
amount of money. The admirer was shocked: “How can you ask for so
much? It took you a minute to draw this!” “No”, Picasso replied, “It
took me 40 years”

cp calendar.ics ~username/public_html/
Go to Google Calandar, and select "Add calendar" and then "Add by URL"
Whenever you update calendar.ics, google calendar should automatically
pick up the changes after a while. (Unsure what the sync interval is,
but seems quick enough for me)
Authentication comes in the form of "security by obscurity"
unfortunately.. Generate a random UUID via uuidgen (or just run: echo
`ps auxw`|md5sum) and then rename your calendar to it, ie:
mv calendar.ics b0cb8ec0-cdeb-4426-a2de-ebd5bed06ee9.ics
(and use that as the URL for google calendar)
I'm afraid this method doesn't involve Perl though!
