    Is there a preference somewhere that will automatically show the current date on the dock without having to lauch ical? (It always says July 17 unless I open the program).

    Thank you.

    Use the search! And to answer the question NO! How will it update the icon if it's not running? iCal would need to execute some code to do this. Just leave it running if you care that much!

    Sorry demi-god. If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. To you other two, thank you for your help.

    Tune it down a notch

    Hey - I don't care how much you've donated to this site nor how smart you think you might be - there is NO REASON to be uncivil when someone asks a simple question.

    I have reduced my own personal traffic to this site because I'm weary of responses such as the one quoted above. Take a PROZAC and a nap.

    To those unhappy with my reply I apologise. It just seems that someone asks this exact question at least once a week, if not more often and a simple search would turn up the same answer.

    Once again, sorry to those I pissed off.
