blocking ads is evil grr
HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

Speaking of calendars, there are two versions of BSD's calendar(1) on AUR.
One is based on an older version of bsdmainutils from upstream Debian but with plenty of patches and calendar files (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/calendar/).
The other is a part of newer bsdmainutils from upstream Ubuntu (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/bsdmainutils/ - also includes ncal).
