Adjust visible hours in iCal via the scroll wheel

Great hint! But I cannot understand why I didn't try it myself first...

I wish there was a standard to which modifier key one should hold down to get the zoom effect. My four most used programs have three different modifier keys.

ical - option
Firefox - command
Word and Excel - Ctrl

and latlely - WoW, no key....

In general I think option is the right modifier for this type of modification.

Command is for initiating menu shortcuts. Apple breaks this in DVD player.
Control is for contextual menus.
Option brings alternate functions to buttons and actions. Control is also used in this way when combined with shortcuts, but almost always with Command.
