    I've found that all the right events are in place on my ipod, but some just appear 1 hour later than they ought to. Not a big problem, but pretty irritating.
    I suspect this has something to do with daylight savings time, since the events i've added SINCE the time changed are correct and the ones before that are off by an hour. But I don't know why this has happened, and I don't know how to fix it. I've just run the ipod software updater, and i tried deleting all the calendars and then resynchronizing. No luck. The same events are still an hour late. Any hints?

    yep. they're all right in ical. just as soon as they get to the ipod, some of them appear as an hour late. It might also have something to do with my now being in Chicago...whereas I was recently in Rhode Island...I've heard iCal sometimes has trouble with time-zones, so I suppose that might have done it. Short of deleting and re-entering every entry in iCal, I still have no idea how to fix it, though.

    Well, the clocks are all correct on it. I just turned on the Daylight Saving Time option on the ipod, which has kept the clocks up to date... and if the time zone on the ipod IS wrong, it is strangely inconsistant about it. Like i said, only SOME of the calendar times are wrong...even though they aren't in ical. The most recently added events are correct both in ical and on the ipod. It's the older ones (a couple weeks old, but recurring things like classes) that are an hour off.
