Synchronizing an Outlook Calendar with a Web Calendar

Does anyone know of a good website I can use to sync my Outlook calendar with web based calendar so my family can see what's on my calendar ?

I've typically used Google Calendar but it's a real pain and seems to lock up from time to time meaning a restart of my system. It sometimes causes problems while it's updating.

Anyone know of anything better out there that can be used ?

Not quite sure why Google Calendar would cause your system to "lock up" - it's a web-based service...

I've implemented Google Calendar Sync for a friend with Outlook 2010, however it doesn't work as well as the Thunderbird/Lighting and Provider for Google Calendar combo.

If you're using Google Calendar anyway, why no just dump Outlook and leap into Gmail full time? Gmail can manage multiple mail accounts and can read and send from most POP/IMAP accounts outside of Gmail.

Clients are so last century

Seriously, you can manage and publish multiple calendars in Google. You friends and family can read them online, via their google accounts or on their smartphones.

More importantly, there is no "sync" to worry about - all your mail and appointments are in the Google cloud. Available from any browser and backed up.

Yes, it was when we originally set them up, and are now trying to play catch up.
