Since the last update to Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.3) the time has disappeared from my menu bar when I go into the Date & Time pane in System Preferences and click on the 'Show date and time in menu bar' it doesn't let me. Is this a noted bug? and can it be fixed easily?

It means you are out of time. It was nice knowing you. :) – kmarsh Nov 13 '09 at 18:12
My last update was 10.6.2 - have you come back from the future? :-) – Steve Folly Nov 14 '09 at 1:19
seriously - does the system log reveal anything wrong? – Steve Folly Nov 14 '09 at 1:19

Try Logging out, use a different user, and move the ~/Library/Preferences/ out of your ailing user directory. Then Log back in. I suspect everything will be fine then.

After several days trying to fix this I decided to reinstall the OS.

That seems drastic for something that should be easy to track down. – ridogi Dec 15 '09 at 22:55
