Extract Directly from Time Machine

Normally you use Time Machine to restore lost data in a file like this: within the Time Machine interface, you go back to the time the file was not yet messed up, and you restore it to replace the file you have now.

You can also elect to keep both, but the restored file takes the name and place of the current one. So, if you have made changes since the backup took place that you would like to keep, they are lost, or you have to mess around a bit to merge changes, rename files, and trash the unwanted one.

As an alternative, you can browse the Time Machine backup volume directly in the Finder like any normal disk, navigate through the chronological backup hierarchy, and find the file which contains the lost content.

Once you've found it, you can open it and the current version of the file side-by-side, and copy information from Time Machine's version of the file into the current one, without losing any content you put in it since the backup was made.

Camino 2.1.1

Send Article to a Friend

The Camino Project has released version 2.1.1 of its eponymous open-source Web browser, which includes a number of updates and fixes. The release includes an upgraded Mozilla Gecko rendering engine (1.9.2.27) and now blocks older versions of Adobe Flash Player 10 and 11 (previous to the currently available 10.3.183.15 and 11.1.102.62 releases, respectively) due to security issues. The update also includes several tweaks for using AppleScript scripts, correctly checks for the presence of a Java plug-in on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and provides several other fixes. (Free, 18.5 MB, release notes)

> now blocks older versions of Adobe Flash Player 10 and 11 (10.3.183.15 and 11.1.102.62 and earlier, respectively)

I checked Adobe's site, but 10.3.183.15 and 11.1.102.62 seem to be the current versions. Are there newer versions somewhere (that would make those versions "older")? Or, does Camino 2.1.1 block the _current_ versions of Adobe Flash Player?
