iCal duh

While talking to a new Mac user about how we both hate that the clock in the menu bar doesn’t show the date (unless you click on it), I realized something. In Leopard, they modified the iCal icon in the Dock to show the current date even when iCal isn’t running. I knew this, yet I didn’t think of looking at it when I wanted to know the date.
