    Its the day you restart your computer and not have to open iCal to get the proper date to show up:)

    they really need to change that..

    so there is a point to this thread.. why the hell have they not?.. does it still not change automatically in Tiger?

    The initial date shown in iCal is just an icon. When open, the correct date is displayed. iCal has to use memory to adjust the date. This is a waste of memory for people who don't use iCal.

    Partial Solution:
    System Preferences -->
    Accounts -->
    Login Items -->
    Click the '+' and add iCal.
    Now it will start at login and quickly display the correct date.

    maybe the ical icon in the dock could become a new hybrid widget/icon, always showing the correct date? :rolleyes:

    ... or not.

    Lets look at it this way, at least you get one day every month it is correct. They could have used the number 31. :)

    As for restarting... I usually only restart when a system update requires it.

    Why did they pick July 17? Did they know this was going to happen on July 17?

    Given this, I'm certain it wasn't because of this!

    If memory serves, July 17 was the date that Stevie Boy unveiled iCal to the world – so today is in fact the app's birthday. Bless!

    iCal was unleashed on the world at the New York MacWorld Expo on 17 July 2002. If misty eyed nostalgia is your thing, here's the Apple press release.

    I am definitely happy to know why that 17 is sitting in the Dock all the time now. It all makes sense now. :cool: :D
