I'm literally drooling

Alerted by this, I installed the following two Thunderbird extensions
  • Lightning - a local calendar integrated into Thunderbird
  • Provider - an extension to sync Lightning with external calendars
Once both were installed, I added new calendars to Lightning, each of which pointing at one of my Google calendars.

The process was painless. I grabbed the appropriate URL for each from Google Calendar, gave it to Lightning, provided my Google password (a twinge here but I'm not going to let it ruin my joy), and the data started flowing.

It works for both read/write - in both directions.

I need a moment.
