The beautiful original 2-up classic weekly calendar for 2008

I appreciate the amount of time it would take to update the original weekly calendar template for 2008, and that is why the auto-generate weekly calendar by ygor was created. I also appreciate all the fine work that went into that program.

However, I just love the look of the original template. It's just so... pretty. :)

So, I am going to update the .odg for the 2007 weekly calendar to make a 2008 weekly calendar. But, before I do this, I want to make sure I am not redoing work. Has anyone else started this project? If not, I will and will upload the template probably in a couple of weeks (I have two preschool children, so things get done slowly in my house).

Once again, I really appreciate the auto-generate program by ygor. It is very nice. I'm just in love with the look of the original templates.

Do you want a different style ?

Which one, please ?
Really an easy thing to add to the application.

I'm so sorry, I thought it

I'm so sorry, I thought it was part of the core package. But when I went searching, I discovered it was not.

The ones that I think are so pretty were created and submitted by Kevin Sonnenberg. Here.

Hmmm... if I'm thinking of updating his templates, I probably should ask his permission first.

OK - I can do this.

Stand by. There are other things in my queue.

For the Record...

I already asked for these pages as a 2pg per week option, ygor - so I think you'll find they are already in the queue. That also means they are closer to the head of the list, right? ;-)

D-oh

D-oh !!

Working on the update...

I've already started updating the template for 2008, ygor. I should have it finished by tonight. Kevin Sonnenberg made a pretty rockin' template that is very easy to modify and update. What is slowing me down actually is my two preschool-age chidren. If I wasn't a mom, I would have it done by now.

Anyways, I will upload the .odg and .pdf for the static file by tomorrow. Then you can take your time working on the dynamic modifications because folks can download the static pages for 2008.

Thanks again, ygor, for all the work you have been doing for the community.

Thanks

Thanks for making these updates for 2008. The biggest pain of this template is getting the duplexing correct.

Since making this 2-page per week template last year, i've created my own 2-page per day format. I love to tinker with my system and hence seem to switch formats quite often :)

I would really like to see

I would really like to see your new design if you feel like sharing it. I really liked the design of the weekly 2-up.

Don't sweat the small stuff!

What is slowing me down actually is my two preschool-age chidren. If I wasn't a mom, I would have it done by now.

Don't let us get in the way of your children! They'll be around long after we are gone. We can wait. :-)

As a "work-at-home" dad (especially thanks to the over $6-per-gallon gas!!) I never begrudge my little 3 yr old when she comes into my office, with a book she wants me to read to her. Someday soon, she will be 18 and leaving home--all too soon! I think my classes and sermons can wait. :-) (besides, that's what the "midnight oil" is for, isn't it?) ;-)

We do appreciate the work you are putting into this! I took a look at the templates, and while they are relatively "easy" to modify, it still looks like a lot of work! Makes me wish I knew how to script OpenOffice. Someday, I will have a powerful enough computer, and I _swear_ I'll conquer it then. (I run NeoOffice on my Mac and molasses in January moves faster)

How are you doing the mini calendars? I'm curious about that one! (there is a commandline tool in Linux and Unix (including MacOS X) that could help you if you are interested in using it, and aren't already.

Thanks, Jon. :) It really

Thanks, Jon. :) It really wasn't that much work and I was able to work around the kiddos. Scripting would have certainly sped up the process, but, like you, I don't know how to script in OpenOffice... I didn't even know you could script in OpenOffice. I just did it by hand.

I did the little mini calendars by hand as well. But Kevin S. had originally created the mini calendars in such a way that they were really easy to update. And once I updated one month, I just cut and pasted it. I didn't update each mini calendar every time.

According to the page...

... the license on this is a Creative Commons license, you don't need to ask for permission, and he says he included the original documents, so you can modify them yourself. He even says to feel free to do so. So, go ahead and do it!

-Jon

Jon's right ! Go for it !

That's what it's all about here. One person creates something, then another person has an idea to improve/modify it, and then we all can benefit from the collective synergy !
The key point is sharing it. Then everyone wins !

Thanks for the info

Thank you for letting me know how this works. Though I am not new to the net, I am new to an open source community. It's actually pretty cool contributing to the community. :)

Finished and uploaded.... I think

I finished and uploaded the updated 2008 weekly 2-up calendar (classic). I've never done this before, and I don't see it in the template directory, but this is the node it gave to me.

Link to template. I hope I did everything correctly.

Also, I included a second .zip file that has the American holidays included. So there are two versions of the file available -- one with holidays and one without.

Access Denied!

I'm getting an "You are not authorized to access this page" error message when trying to go to the template :-(

That's because it was not

That's because it was not approved. I just released it so you can view it now.

Enjoy!

I'm sorry I was so

I'm sorry I was so impatient. I was just so excited! I told my husband, who is a Java programmer, "Hey baby, I contributed to an open source community. How cool is your wife?"

Anyways, thank you. :)

I finished and uploaded last

I finished and uploaded last night, but when I posted to this thread, it marked it as spam. So I'm trying to post again. :)

I uploaded the zip files, but they aren't showing up in the templates directory. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong. It gave me this address when it was finished but you can only see the content if you are logged in as me.

I have a lot still to learn about the logistics of this site.
