I foolishly answered the question you asked rather than the one you
meant. The actual calendar data is stored here (for local calendars):


Again, I'd recommend synching when Evo is not running.


Ummmm... no offense, but just looking at your instructions for changing machines makes me think that the design of evolution is a bit insane. I really don't feel like what I want to do should be that difficult. I figured since evolution is the default calendar for most linux systems, it wouldn't be... well such a pain to work with on multiple machines.
