FullCalendar mini-sized

I've always liked Adam Shaw's FullCalendar plugin and while I was trolling Stackoverflow I found a question about how one would make a tiny version of the calendar. Gears started grinding and I figured that it could be done with just some basic CSS. YAY!!

This is from the answer I posted on Stackoverflow:
You can make a fully functional tiny version by adding a bit of CSS. I had to add a "eventMouseover" callback to add the event name to the title attribute, so you can see it's name in the tooltip.

Here is a screen shot of the mini-sized calendar (200 x 225)

And jsFiddle for a demo:

So, just in case something happens to Stackoverflow and/or jsFiddle, here is the CSS and javascript that was used:
#calendar {
    width: 200px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    font-size: 10px;
.fc-header-title h2 {
    font-size: .9em;
    white-space: normal !important;
.fc-view-month .fc-event, .fc-view-agendaWeek .fc-event {
    font-size: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    height: 2px;
.fc-view-agendaWeek .fc-event-vert {
    font-size: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    width: 2px !important;
.fc-agenda-axis {
    width: 20px !important;
    font-size: .7em;

.fc-button-content {
    padding: 0;
$(document).ready(function() {

        theme: true,
        header: {
            left: 'prev,next today',
            center: 'title',
            right: 'month,agendaWeek,agendaDay'
        editable: true,

        // add event name to title attribute on mouseover
        eventMouseover: function(event, jsEvent, view) {
            if ( !== 'agendaDay') {
                $('title', event.title);
