DNUG iCal again

Today we started the iCal-Subsription for the next DNUG Conference (June, 4-6) again. And like the previous times, that service is well accepted. I wonder if it would be a nice feature to subscribe single tracks out of the whole list. When I coded that version, the target was to have all tracks in on email to get them into ones personal calendar. While this is for sure a good solution and works quite stable now, I can think of bookmarking single tracks. There would be two advantages: when receiving and accepting the iCal file, the user doies not get his inbox flooded with more than one hundret broadcasts, he has to accept each for its own - he would get only those, who are inhis main interest focus, since he already selected them. The second advantage applies to users of different time planning system than notes: there are some of them claiming to be able to use iCal files but in fact do not implement the standard behind it - and so are only able to process the first entry of such a file...

There is one pitfall: you have to reboot your device after the install. The software does not ask for it, but simply does not work, if you start it without rebooting.
