    for some reason, almost any entry i have for one of my 4 calendars in iCal that is on the 30th or March is printed on the 29th instead, when i print. Same with the 31st of March, being printed on the 30th.

    This is on iCal 2.0.5 (1069) on OSX 10.4.11 on a Macbook Pro.

    I have 5 entries there, and only 2 are displayed correctly.

    Entry A: from 30/03/08 at 11.00am to 30/03/08 at 11.01am
    Entry B: from 30/03/08 at 11.30am to 30/03/08 at 11.31am
    Entry C: from 30/03/08 at 04.00pm to 30/03/08 at 05.00pm
    Entry D: from 31/03/08 at 04.25am to 31/03/08 at 05.25am
    Entry E: from 31/03/08 at 05.00pm to 31/03/08 at 06.00pm

    The first three are being displayed on the 29th of march, instead of 30th when printing. The second 2 are being displayed on the 30th isntead of 31st when printing... The same is shown in the print preview too.

    During the print page, if i select "Next Month" instead, it shows the correct entries on 30th and 31st though.. But going back to "This Month" shows them wrong again

    all the other events from 21st march until 2nd april are correct, except these two dates... strange.

    The first thing that comes to mind is that iCal is confused, and thinks Leap Day occurs in March instead of February, and thus thinks that March 30th and 31st don't exist... I have no idea what could cause this, but the "standard troubleshooting" steps are worth a try:
    1. Move the application's preference file to your Desktop, then relaunch the application
    2. Delete any caches associated with the application (usually found in ~/Library/Caches where ~ is your user folder), then relaunch the application
    3. Repair permissions

    Thanks for the update.

    Just 1 question. Where do i find its preference file ?

    Edit: Assuming the folders are right, I deleted the cache from Library > Cache > Metadata , and moved the iCal folder from Library > Application Support, and did what you said, but still the problem is here. I think it's time for me to finally upgrade to 10.5 =/
