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.

Transmit 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Panic has released Transmit 4.2, which adds support for Notification Center in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and fixes some issues with graphics viewed on the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. On supported MacBook Pro models, Transmit now uses only the integrated graphics processor. The update also fixes an issue when dragging files from Panic’s Coda 2 Web development app, and it no longer autofills your email address for eList signup. ($34 new, free update, 27.8 MB, release notes)
