OK, this is screwy. How do you set the date format on the menubar? I went to System Preferences -> Date & Time -> International -> Formats -> Customize So, I type in how I want it, click OK... and nothing happens! I close Sys Pref panel, no changes. My date display format on the menubar is "Wed" - that's it. Seems nothing I can do about this. Any ideas? Edit: and yes, I do it as admin, and the pref panel is unlocked to allow changes. Another thing, when I click on the "Wed" in the menubar, it shows a bunch of options, but the format I want is greyed out.
