    ical.fromURL('http://lanyrd.com/topics/nodejs/nodejs.ics', {}, function(err, data) {
      for (var k in data){
        if (data.hasOwnProperty(k)) {
          var ev = data[k]
          console.log("Conference",
            ev.summary,
            'is in',
            ev.location,
            'on the', ev.start.getDate(), 'of', months[ev.start.getMonth()]);
        }
      }
    });
