months/weeks as full segments.  However, often a user desires to view
events that are overlapping between months.  Often a user needs to
schedule reoccurring meetings which will overlap between months.
Users desire a method by which partial/overlapping calendar
information between months/weeks/years can be conveyed.

      Provided is a method by which the calendar exists with scroll
bars.  Upon the user reaching the end of a previous month, the title
bar changes to convey the overlapping month.  In addition, the scroll
scale can be designated for a specified decade or century (Figure).
