    That Calendar Dummy sounds fantastic, but is just the latest in a long line of services that are promoed worldwide but will only work in one country.

    Ian- I was reading a blog that said CalendarDummy hopes to be worldwide by the end of the year. It sounds like they're using the United States market as testing grounds. I live in the US and have been using it for the past couple of weeks--love it.
