Subject: Fixed A Calendar Bug 

Understanding the Code:  Documented more functions in summary_pages.py.  Since it is very difficult and slow to understand what is going on, it might be best to just start trying to factor out the code into multiple files, and understand how the code works from there.

Crontab:  Started learning how the program is called by cron / what cron is, so that I can fix the problem that forces data to only be displayed up until 6PM.

Calendars:  One of the problems with the page is that the calendars on the left column didn't have any of the months of 2013 in them.

I identified the incorrect block of code as:

Original Code:
  # loop over months
  while t < e:
     if t.month < startday.month or t >= endday:
       ptable[t.year].append(str)
    else:
      ptable[t.year].append(calendar_link(t, firstweekday, tab=tab, run=run))

    # increment by month
    # Move forward day by day, until a new month is reached.
    m = t.month
    while t.month == m:
      t = t + d

    # Ensure that y still represents the current year.
    if t.year > y:
      y = t.year
      ptable[y] = []

The problem is that the months between the startday and endday aren't being treated properly.

Modified Code:
  # loop over months
  while t < e:
    if (t.month < startday.month and t.year <= startday.year) or t >= endday:
      ptable[t.year].append(str)
    else:
      ptable[t.year].append(calendar_link(t, firstweekday, tab=tab, run=run))

    # increment by month
    # Move forward day by day, until a new month is reached.
    m = t.month
    while t.month == m:
      t = t + d

    # Ensure that y still represents the current year.
    if t.year > y:
      y = t.year
      ptable[y] = []


After this change, the calendars display the year of 2013, as desired.
