Single Time Machine Backups

Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.

Free Java Tools for Symantec C++

Send Article to a Friend

Free Java Tools for Symantec C++ -- Symantec released its first set of Macintosh Java development tools (codenamed Caffeine) for Symantec C++. Caffeine is free to Symantec C++ customers, and integrates Sun's virtual machine, Java compiler, and other components of Sun's Macintosh Java Development Kit into the Symantec Project Manager, letting users create and compile Java applets, then run them in Sun's Java Applet viewer. Caffeine is a precursor to Symantec's already-announced Java development environment Cafe, a stand-alone set of Java development tools that will also be free to Symantec C++ customers. The Caffeine release is about 5 MB in size. Caffeine is available for Power Macintosh, with a 68K version due "in a few weeks." [GD]
