is something going to get released on this date
i dont know if youre kidding but, that's the way the iCal icon appears in the dock before you open it. It only changes the date after you have opened the program once, but when you restart, it goes back to the 17 of jul every time.
that's lame and stupid... why wouldn't it show the correct date all the time?
Hah, I know really.
I actually used the "send iCal feedback" feature and wrote: "Who missed the memo to have the actual date show in the iCal dock icon?....or is that scheduled for release JUL 17th?"
i was joking people!
Because the application has to be running to do that. Not running all the time let's you determine if you want to use resources to run the application, not the other way around.
god you are sexy
bullshit... In an event-driven system, it does NOT take more than 2 lines of code, executed once every 24 hours and again at boot, to set an icon.
so, mine goes back to july 17th when I close iCal in Tiger. Does anyone else have this issue? It didn't do this in Panther.
spoken like a true mac sack-rider
Congrats on being the first person ever to be put on my Ignore List.
Ahh. How refreshing.
So...anyone else used the iCal Feedback to ask them to have the current date displayed in the dock?
I'm trying to figure out how it would update itself if it wasn't running...
*cough* cron *cough*
What windows calender programs have an icon that updates the current date even when it is not open?
just as iTunes, etc. have processes that run in the background even when the app isn't running, the same could be done for iCal. i believe iSync updates iCal regardless of whether or not iCal is running, so there's certainly no reason they couldn't add a simple script that runs at start up and midnight each night to update the date on the icon.
(note the date)
I think he is on the IL of most of the people in here.
