New in WebCal
Day before yesterday
- Added a calendar containing important dates for Finnish taxpayers.
- I've been looking for a reliable way to calculate Moon rise and set times. But that does require knowledge of the user's location, and this in turn would require most users to update their subscriptions for it to work. However, once the new site is ready, there will be some new events in the Moon calendar.
- The Moon calendar is currently the most popular calendar with about 80,000 users (including all available languages). The Sun calendar is second with 65,000 subscibers. Next come Week numbers (both US and EU) and Weather.
- I've been working on a full rewrite of all WebCal.fi code. The workload is absolutely huge and will take months to finish. However, it is proceeding well. I'll report to you once there is something to show. But as I have my real work to do as well, this will have to be done in my spare time. At least until WebCal.fi starts generating money :-)
- If your IOS device shows alarms for WebCal.fi events, they're added by your device, not by WebCal. Check your settings at Settings app > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Scroll almost all the way down for Default Alert Times an open it > Make sure default alarm time for All-Day Events (and possibly Events, especially if you use Sun or Moon calendar) is set to None. Contact me if you have problems.
- The database behind WebCal.fi gets 550 queries per second (on average).
- WebCal.fi usage continues its long upward trend. Currently almost 3 million calendar downloads are served each day (over 30 each second). Out of these, about 750,000 are unique (regenerated at request time). The rest are fetched from cache. The server can handle this load, but its limits are approaching again.

Good to know
Halloween (a shortening of All Hallows’ Evening), also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve, is a yearly holiday observed around the world on October 31, the night before All Saints' Day. Much like Day of the Dead celebrations, the Christian feast of All Hallows' Eve, according to some scholars, incorporates traditions from pagan harvest festivals and festivals honouring the dead, particularly the Celtic Samhain; other scholars maintain that the feast originated entirely independently of Samhain. Typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating (also known as "guising"), attending costume parties, carving jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, watching horror films, as well as the religious observances of praying, fasting and attending vigils or church services.

- World Savings Day
The World Savings Day was established on October 31st 1924 during the 1st International Savings Bank Congress (World Society of Savings Banks) in Milano, Italy. The Italian Professor Filippo Ravizza declared this day the "International Saving Day" on the last day of the congress. In the resolutions of the Thrift Congress it was decided that ‘World Thrift Day’ should be a day devoted to the promotion of savings all over the World. In their efforts to promote thrift the savings banks also worked with the support of the schools, the clergy, as well as cultural, sports, professional, and women’s associations.
