Apple has released a minor update to MobileMe Backup that purportedly improves overall reliability in restoring from backup - though no specifics are provided in the release notes - and introduces a feature that helps the program use disk space more efficiently. That feature is called "recycling" and amounts to the deleting of old backups to recover disk space. Limited scheduling options are available to those backing up to hard disk or optical discs; users backing up to iDisk do not have the option of choosing when backups are recycled. Users may also choose to disable recycling. More information on recycling is available on Apple's Web site. The update is available via Software Update or the Apple Support Downloads page.

Enter Dashboard, Expose, or Spaces Temporarily
Hold down F9, F10, F11, or F12 (or whatever you've set for the Expose and Spaces keyboard shortcuts) for a few seconds, and then release the key to enter and leave the appropriate mode without having to press the key again. This is particularly useful for Dashboard, in which you can check the contents of a widget and then return to your work with only a single key press.

If you have a failure it will be obvious in the logs.
A corrupted file will cause a failure and that file will show itself over and over again in the logs at the fail point. Delete and enjoy.
BTW MobileMe is available for a 30 dollar savings from Amazon..70 bucks. Well worth it for all the features.
