    So I started off with a Macbook and MobileMe and have since added an iMac. When I go into iCal on the iMac I have my MobileMe / me.com calendar with all my personal calendar info and there really isn't anything stored as far as calendar events on the iMac. Can I change that? It's a long story, but my work blocks access to me.com so I can't subscribe to my personal calendar from work and when I try to export from the iMac, there isn't anything stored there to export. I supose I could export from the Macbook but I don't know if I need a Macbook, iMac, iPad & iPhone so I may sell the Macbook. Should I start with exporting from the Macbook and importing to the iMac? Sorry if these are noob questions.

    Thanks!
    Chris

    Hmmm. There must just be something screwy going on with my Windows PC (go figure). If I export from iCal and reimport then everthing then shows up ans being on the iMac. Then when I try and export again and import on the POS Windows laptop, nothing is there....WTF?!?! I guess I'll just have to live with things the way they are.

    Ok, figured it out. If I take the exported file on the iMac, compress it, email it to my windows machine then decompress it and open the attachement, it works. What a pain in the butt. At least I have both my personal and work calendars on my work laptop now. Sharing my work calendar and subscribing to it on my Apple devices has never been a problem.
