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.

here.
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.
