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.

The update fixes some unspecified Google Calendar syncing bugs, a bug that prevented past due to-do items from showing in the To Do List, bootstrapping bugs with Daylite and Zimbra CalDAV Servers, and a bug that occurred when entering start times between 0001-0059 in 24-hour time. It also adds an option to print multiple months/weeks when viewing a custom number of weeks/days. ($49.99 new, but currently selling for $29.99 solely via the Mac App Store, free update, 8.3 MB, release notes)
