This idea really appeals to me personally and I'll be watching this 
thread; but I can't help but see the humor in it as well.

Little Jimmy, I can't take you to soccer practice because you didn't 
schedule it on your calendar! What? Your Vista Outlook install isn't 
syncing with the BSD CalDAV server? Well, use the web interface to 
schedule a time for Dad to debug it. It's not your Mother's fault that 
you insisted on having a Dell Windows laptop.
