How to display the date on the menu bar

it can be a big pain when all you need is a quick way to find the current date. Before Snow Leopard you would have to install a new application to get the job done. Now with a simple change in the system preferences you can display the current date on the menu bar.

Just go to the ‘Date & Time’ pane of the system preferences. On that page you can click ‘Show Date’ to start displaying the date. It’s a really simple tweak but one that can be extremely useful in everyday use of OS X.

    Upgraded to Snow Leopard by purchasing a new computer. But since I did that I cannot run any of my kids education software ie, kid pix, jumpstart etc. Where do I get software that will run on Snow Leopard or what can I do to get this software to run?

    You can't. If they make that software for it than buy it. If not than too bad. Of course Snow Leopard should have nothing to do with that. It's because the software won't run on Intel processors.
