No, he doesn't write plugins. There are a few people who drop in from time to time and write a plugin, but all of this is done on volunteer basis, so we can only suggest ideas and hope someone decides to run with it. That or learn C++ ourselves...

but what about XML, ICAL and some other feed (is that a feed?) that Google provides for all calendars?

I think you either mistaken or thinking of something else. Google Calendar provides 3 different types of feeds for *any* calendar, public or private. Private feed contains all events, public feed contains public events. And I remember that Enigma's RSS GCal skin was able to use private feed to pull events from my private calendar. It didn't display them right but that's unrelated.

So there are feeds plugin could use even if calendar is private.

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a code language. i dunno about the enigma Gcal skin :S guess i missed something..

Is there a known way (or a sort of idea) on making Rainmeter read two calendars at once? Because I have 4 that I need displayed.

Would you need to parse each calendar individually then organise them?

Copy the skin with calendar, make sure there's no touble with variables (i.e the link to the calendar is the same variable). Link them to the calendars. And make sure ou have the four skins in different folders, or else rainmeter will see them as diffrent versions instead of seperate skins.
I don't think, therefore I'm not.
