I am working on a public calendar system based on sharepoint calendar lists.  I would like to be able to us spervices to access a list on from is not a sharepoint server.  As I was looking at the SPServices calls I couldn't find a place to specify the services url.  Is this possible?

SPServices is designed and built to work within a SharePoint context. There's simply no way to build something like this for general use outside SharePoint because there is just way too much possibility for unpredictable variation.

That said, you can access SharePoint's Web Services from anywhere if you use the SDK as your guide. There are links in the SPServices documentation to most of the important operations in the SDK.
