    anybody else ever have issues with leopard's ical icon not updating?

    i noticed a few minutes ago my ical icon still said jan 1 even though its now jan 2. i opened ical and it changed to jan 2, but when i quit ical, it went back to jan 1....

    screenshared into my imac back at school and ical changed fine over there, so i guess its not a leopard wide bug.

    anyone else ever notice something like this?

    I had the same problem with the dock icon showing 31 on Jan 1st. If I opened iCal the dock icon would display the 1, but as soon as I closed iCal the dock icon would revert to 31.

    It was correct today (the 2nd) when I booted up for the first time.

    weird, huh? turns out after manually changing the date (and turning off automatic clock updates) and then moving it back to the second fixed it... we'll see what happens tomorrow.

    i was afraid it was a y2k8 bug in leopard or something....

    Option 1:
    Open Terminal and type (Case Sensitive)
    Killall Dock

    Option 2:
    - Quit iCal
    - Drag iCal icon off of the Dock
    - Add iCal icon back to the Dock

    Instead of killall Dock, not that there's really anything wrong with it, you can use a one-line Applescript to quit Dock cleanly:

    tell application "Dock" to quit
