(this didn't seem to make it the first time)

Hi, a couple more...

* I get a conference announcement (email or Web page) which has meeting
dates and various deadlines. I want to pull out the dates and other
relevant info into whatever organizing tool I'm using this week.

* I'm travelling to another country and would like to know if they are
having any holidays while I'm there

* I want to publish my calendar online, but only want specific groups of
people to see specifc details

* It's time to write a yearly report and all the project members have to
send their time spent on the project so the largely fictional 'person
months spent' can be compared to the completely fictional 'person months
