Stuck iCal calendar updates can impact CPU usage Apps
Over the past few days, when I get up I have noticed my CPU utilization going through the roof. So, I take a closer look via top in my terminal window and I see iCal sucking down 106% CPU utilization of my Dual 867 (2GB RAM). I leave iCal running all the time, so I expand its window from my dock and it appears to be updating my subscriptions. Well, almost everyday it gets stuck updating one of my calendars (seemingly a different one every time). I have a total of 16 calendars with 12 "Daily" subscriptions.

By unchecking and rechecking the display calendar box, the update stops. Now, saying all that, my tip is to check your CPU utilization if you leave iCal running and potentially reclaim your CPU cycles! I know this is more a bug than a tip but ... cycles are cycles!
Hope this helps!

I'm on a 400 mhz G4 at work, and I'm subscribed to the calendars on my home computer, and it was running really slow, so I opened process viewer and having ical in the background was taking up 75% of my cpu cycles. I haven't investigated it much though. I really need to look into this problem on the G3 450 I have at home, cuz that'll really impact performance.
