    but if you click the link where the missing picture is it still works.... must be a server hiccup or something

    OR an update to 1.2.... or was it 1.5?

    I've got a theory...

    It ran off with iCal's missing support for SSL connections...

    It's back, but it now says Feb 1 on the calendar icon. Why did they change this? I have no clue.

    Feb 1, perhaps its the release date of the PB G5 ;)

    Hopefully they took down the download button because iCal 1.5 is about to be released.

    Actually I think it's your cache. It most definitely is back.

    i stoled it

    Sorry, but you're most definitely wrong. Try loading the page in other browsers or other computers. The graphic does not load.

    Just a broken image link if you ask me. You can still download it just fine. I would get excited if the link and image were gone.
  15. macrumors 68030


    I dunno. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm in Japan, but the image loads fine in two other browsers on my Mac and also on a Winblows machine.

    It's weird though... if it were on the Akamai network it could possibly make sense that it doesn't load for you but it loads for me. But, it's on the Apple network... here is the link to the image.

  16. macrumors 6502a


    You're right, that is weird. Your link to the image does work, but on Apple's page it's not there.

    Well, hopefully 1.5 will be released soon and it just won't matter any more!

    I'm seeing this image link instead, which doesn't exist:


    Pretty sure that's the source of the controversy.

    21download shows 2/1 so 230download would indictate 2/30, a non-existent date, hence no image.

    The iCal page is neat - it usually shows the current date. The script that updates the page with the current URL reference must be broken.

    This is a website admin problem, not a product announcement. Send a note to webmaster@apple.com, not MacRumors.

    When I view the source of http://www.apple.com/ical, it shows:

    15download.gif ???

    I dunno why that shows up in the source but if you open in a new window it shows a different filename?
  19. macrumors 68030


    Yeah, looks like the script has gone bizzerk and it's loading different pages for different people.

    Re: Well...

    15download actually refers to Jan 5 (2003), when iCal 1.0.2 was released. You can actually see the image on the server here.

    This must be what they call: The missing link!
  23. macrumors member

    This should be a page 3 rumor. ****ing pointless.
  24. macrumors 6502a



    i just took that a minute ago. i have disk cache disabled, but i haven't visited the ical site in months anyway.
  25. macrumors 6502a


    It looks like they finally fixed it. And still no 1.5. :(
