  • I don't know what you're seeing. iCal has worked zippily and promptly for me. ps tells me
    gnat 1206 0.0 6.5 193992 50780 ?? S 8:42PM 1:55.93 /Applications/iCal.app/Contents/MacOS/iCal -psn_0_10878977
    Which isn't anywhere near 600K.

    You're just cursed. Sucks to be you. Rocks to be me, with football games, DVD releases, movie releases, and holidays all synched with iCal :-)

    • How big are your calendar files on disk? ~/Library/Calendars/. Mine topped 600K. That's what I was talking about.
  • But that doesn't excuse 600K of calendars taking up 40% of my RAM on a 512MB machine (according to Process Viewer) in iCal.

    Are you sure that you are reading the Process Viewer output right?

    `ps` on Mac OS X is reporting memory usage differently than other BSD's and Linux ...

    (I botched my OS X installation with the latest upgrade, so I can't check what iCal uses on my box right now).

    • Are you sure that you are reading the Process Viewer output right?

      When it says "% Memory" and below that reads "40", yeah, I think so. :-)

      Note that I have *only* seen this with a large-ish calendar. No one else I've talked to who reports significantly lower memory use has had a calendar .ics file larger than 300K, let alone 500K or more.
