For the past two years, I’ve been playing hockey at Ice Oasis. It’s a nice enough rink, but their web site is terrible. While they’ve since ditched the neon colours, the schedule page is pretty awful:
- you have to see all of the teams at once
- white text on a red background is hard to read
- it’s hard to tell when your next game is
My ice oasis schedule fixes all of those problems, and gives you even more. Features include:
- A bookmarkable URL for your team
- A choice of formats: HTML, plain text, iCal and RSS
- Your next game is highlighted in green, and if that game is today, it is highlighted in red.
- The colour of the team you’re playing is shown
- A dynamically repopulating team menus whenever you change the day of the week
The site caches data from their site and converts it, much like Google makes PDFs and Word files available in HTML. It’s pretty gentle, not hitting the real site more than once a day.
