Actually, the gpe calendar works just fine by itself (when the id10t
at the keyboard doesn't do something incredibly stupid...). Erminig
only lets you sync it with Google calendar, and is very simple and
works very well. Exactly two clicks to do the update, and setting up a
calendar is a piece of cake.

Apps can't always be set up out of the box to work with unrelated apps/data...

...So anyway I removed the entries from Erminig and re-added them
(took all of a minute), and now everything is hunkey-dorey again!
(Apparently the sync process remembers events that have been synced
and not changed and doesn't waste bandwidth re-syncing them.)
